Why we need to change the school system
If you look at this phone from 100 years ago and this phone from today
And this car from 100 years ago and a car from today
There is a big difference right
Yet you compare a class from 100 years ago to a class today they are the same
Thats Weird , in 100 years i believe nothing much has changed in education system
A phone can update yet why can’t the schooling system ?
I thought School was meant to educate us for the future but I believe the schooling system is educating us for the past ,times have changed so why can’t the school ?.What is with this one-size-fits-all rubbish grading us like clothing when no two brain are alike this is scientifically proven , so why do we have one teacher for a class of 20 to 30 students ,because all students have different strength and weaknesses that teachers try to cater for all , but with a big class this is hard to do.
We are told we can be anything yet school degrades us by our grade on our school paper an E but what does this E mean?,when u dont get and E and get a NA you are judge by other peers because you are not “concerned smart” but what does smart mean ? albert einstein once said “everybody is a genius “.
But theses standard test are degrading, the man Frederick J.kelly who invented standardized testing said “theses test are to crude and should not be used “ so why are we using them ?that doesn’t make any sense .I believe no one is slow you just need to figure out your own learning style and use it to your advantage .
There are many types of learning styles such as visual,auditory, reading/writing preference and kinesthetic.
Me myself I believe I’m an auditory I learn better when I am told what to do and remember the information by listening .
What is auditory learning ? , “Auditory learning is a learning style in which a person learns through listening. An auditory learner depends on hearing and speaking as a main way of learning.”
‘ What is visual learning ? “Visual learning is a style in which a learner utilizes graphs, charts, maps and diagrams”.
What is another type of learning kinesthetic ‘“Kinesthetic learning is also known as tactile learning this learning style which takes place by the students carrying out physical activities, rather than listening to a lecture or watching demonstrations”.
There are many tests you can do online and i believe theses should be used used when a student first starts school this could be very beneficial for all students being placed in a class with other students that have similar learning styles this way the teacher could cater all learning styles and help students learn better .
The teachers should also take the test to see what they’re learning style is.This way they can teach the students with the same learning style as them
this test should be taken every year and should be taken seriously as this could help the students with their learning because one size doesn’t fit all
Teacher should get payed as much as doctors because they are just important
Doctors can cure a human’s sickness or fix a child’s heart but a great teacher can touch a kids heart and change their life completely this is why i say teacher should get payed more than just minimum wage throughout all countries they teach us for the future and keep the cycle going if we didn’t have teachers we would never learn how to read ,write or even spelling the basic things that is now just second nature to most students .we should give teachers more respect and pay them more than minimum wage
The school system should bring up and praise our creativity , Well that’s what i thought school was for yet those teachers that are meant to help us find our creatively and help us find what we are gifted at are given a teaching outline
We should give them a more creative and independent teaching outline because teachers keep the system going and are meant to teach us the skills for jobs yet the school system can’t update , i’m not blaming the teacher i’m blaming national qualifications authority they haven’t taught a day in their life yet they set and outline on what they the teachers in nz have to teacher in a year they don’t say the teachers have to teacher in a certain way but because of what they have to teach in the year the teachers end up teaching in a “one size fits all” teaching style .If the nzqa changed some of the circulation that had to be taught in the year they could make some room for more collaboration work and bring in different teaching styles this could help many students with their work
If you look at the education system in finland, a country that is internationally ranked top
For their education system and has topped most education list since the year 2000 is a country we should be like aim to be like ,maybe if we were more like their education ,this could help students and make them want to come to school not see it as a place they dread .in finland the have less school hours , homework is none organist teachers make a decent waged and you don’t start school till they are the age of 7 they work on collaboration rather than thinking of each other as competition .finland can realizes there needs to be a change in the education system why can’t the rest of the world
In 2015 internally finland did rank 6th in the pisa test what is pisa it is an international student assessment , by the organisation for economic co-operation and development also known as the oecd .the pisa test is used on 15 year old pupils testing their knowledge on mathematics ,science literacy and reading with most countries in east asia dominated the list in 2015 pisa test is countries we should be striving to be like finland is trying its best to changing the worlds out look on the education so why is nobody seeing there needs to be a change
We should need to see more technology in schools ,because we are seeing more technology used by all teens and young children ,teaches are not needing to teach many children how to use computers because a good percentage already know how . using technology would be beneficial , in many ways , it can be beneficial not only to students but to teaches ,teaches can have students open a doc and have students share their work to see how students are going or teachers can share information about the next assessment rather than printing out the information that students may lose the next day
Students can also use the web to search up information for projects or internals .we can save more trees if we used technology rather than useless textbooks in school
Theses are just a few reason why we should see more technology used in school .
Students may be 20 % of the population of the world but students are 100% of the future .I believe education system must be changed because modern day schooling is killing creative and individually of students no wonder so many drop out .theses skills the school are teaching us many are not useful for the future of the world and i believe the world is forever changing and the future of this world wants more creative and innovative people to change and progress the world ,educate for the future not the past
