EDUCATION REFORM 2

Our school system is the most fundamental cause of the social problems that our society faces today.  Traditional methods of compulsory education have managed to isolate the classroom from greater society, stifle creativity, and prohibit children from progressing at their own pace and according to their own needs.  Through reexamining our fundamental beliefs about learning, allowing children to control their own education curriculum, and utilizing modern technology, we can make school more enjoyable, effective, affordable, and tailored to the unique needs of individual students.
