The current education system is doomed to failure!

The current system measures one person against another. This produces both successes and failures. The group which scores in the lower quartile has their self esteem damaged by the (unfair) comparison. In fact, we are trying to teach something for which this group is not ready or we are forcing a failure in order to make the curve come out as expected!

Please see the article "The vital role of self-esteem" in business week for 02/02/98 p. 26.

New system is pass/fail for all course work. Then test to determine interest, skills and knowledge in subject areas to determine where the individual should best spend their time to achieve their full potential. Not everyone wants or needs to be a doctor of philosophy. Some people would be much happier stocking the shelves in a store.

The goal should be to achieve maximum quality of life for each individual and society as a whole.

Elements of solution:

  1. Teach children why they want to go to school and succeed
  2. Fund all education from the income tax at the state level
  3. Eliminate home work
  4. Universal Internet Usage
  5. After School programs
