What should we wave goodbye to in education, for once and for all? There are obvious answers: word search puzzles, homework projects, some would say cursive writing, focus on standardized high stakes testing. It’s a big list.
I wish that we could change the subject and department silos in secondary school. Yes, that’s right. I want to see an end to subject departments and subject specific teachers. That system has been in place for over 100 years and it no longer makes sense. Why can’t we have multidisciplinary and inquiry courses of study in high school? We could even see the end of the final exam. That would be nice.
