I trust that most parents will know what their kids need, but there are new routes to education that we didn’t (at least as accessibly) have before like charter schools, online education, etc… I am convinced that the problems we face today need new solutions, and if we begin thinking in new ways, we’ll keep producing the same problems that we’re in.
I am not saying that public education is all bad (I am a product of it), but could it be better? And, is it the best choice with the growing options around us. Not everyone can afford private school, and not everyone can home school, so the least we can do is bring awareness to problems that public schools create, in hopes to reform it.
I think what we need to create a culture of learning, not a culture of memorizing. We need more curious people.
