America’s worst problem has got to be education. The better we can educate our children in the was of the world, the better we/they will be able to solve all our other problems. But, we have to make being ‘educated or a problem solver’ something children want to be, not a pro basketball player or rapper. I grew up wanting to be Macgyver, now I am on this site replying to this poll.
So whats your solution, I’m curious? I need to know so I can better the world. Are you saying I should not let my students to want to be Spider Man or Super Man? Whats wrong with being a basketball player or a rapper? They make more then you I’m sure. It’s called an imagination, creativity, something all children need to have and use in order to be sucessful in life. Are you wanting them to grow up faster? How does wanting to be the things make education a problem?
As many of my friends who are teachers report, the problem is not with the education they are give. The problem lies with the student being raised not to achieve, so that by the time they arrive at school, they willingly accept failure.
