Truths
Proposed Education
Axioms and Postulates
 

A student's Special Intelligence, what they do best, should be determined and central to their educational efforts. Equal does not mean the same so unique treatment using Individualized Curriculums is essential.
Reading enjoyment is primary to success so students determine
what they read and level.1

 3  World Changed,
Good Jobs Disappeared

Public Education
Must Follow

Our best and brightest students are in a struggle with the best and brightest from around the world.
Job Polarization has decreased opportunities for average academically educated High School graduates.

There are
Few Good Jobs! and academically oriented students must work harder, especially non-stem majors.

5. Determine
Education Plan
Step One

Local Community
Choose and Prioritize Possible Goals based on Appropriate Axiom and Postulates

 

1. Improve HS Graduation Rate
2. Maximize Use of Free Internet Learning Materials

3. Publicly Accountable Charter Schools judged by the cost/benefits analysis to the community.
4. Maximize College Acceptance  
5. Track Students by Ability
6. Community or State Determines Curriculum Content
7
. A Student's Curriculum Based on What They Do Well

8. Guided by Bloom's Taxonomy

9. Choose between
Pedagogy or Andragogy classroom theories

1Students go to their reading computer and read Jack and Jill went and then they choose an option like ball game, dance, rodeo, movie... Once students begin the computer takes over and adjusts the reading level and direction for each student based on what they want to read, how fast they read with how well they read based on some

end of assignment easy questions. This is not an IQ test. There is no hurry as the only complete failure is those that can't read well enough to begin the process which indicates the need for special personal attention. A 7th grade reading level at H.S. graduation

is OK if desire means continued reading. The key is when hey decide they want more they are prepared. Thanks!
