Flaws in our educational system (Research Prospectus)
Education is a highly valued resource in today’s modern society. It is considered necessary for success in the majority of careers. In order to ensure all students an equal shot at success and meeting high standards in their professional careers, our education system should receive top notch funding and be efficiently designed. Our public schools are not designed to fit needs of a variety of different students. Many different personality traits require different classroom classroom layouts, schedule designs and levels of instruction. There are many kids who have a disability that requires them to learn in a certain way. How can we create an educational system that can accommodate all different learning needs and styles? What are some ways that teachers and scientists can make intention learning environments to suite different needs and disabilities?
I once saw a political comic strip that depicted an elephant, a monkey, a bird, and a giraffe along with a man who represented our educational system. The man was giving the animals a test and instructed them all to climb a tree that was nearby; whoever got to the top would be the winner. This goes to show how unfair and unrealistic our educational system can be. All of these animals have a different strength or talent so it would not make since to perform such a narrow test.
