Why don’t classrooms resemble great businesses? Meaning, the customers needs are primary.
- We believe children cannot make directional decisions: they don’t know what they want, we, the adults decide.
- As a result, teaching has been standardised: one size fits all students.
- Teachers’ individualism is marginalised by the system.
- There are not the resources allocated to deal with individualism: education is underfunded.
It’s easy to say that it is funding that’s at fault, however, that kind of a shift will take time, nevertheless, teachers could start to integrate programs for individualism. They could be given the latitude to break away from the syllabus.
