7 Reasons Why the U.S. Education System Is Failing!Recently, today really, I saw a post of a video on Facebook that comprehensive straightforward questions posed to college students regarding BASIC societal and historical facts, events and the people who govern our nation. The results were astonishing to say the least! Abject failure and an inability to identify or name ANY of those people, places and events. The formal education system in the U.S. was created to fulfill the requirements of the industrial revolution by offering basic education to the masses. Pretty simple right?

So why is it that we don’t recognize or refuse to acknowledge that the requirements are different now? There has not been a calculable redefinition or development of the educational system since. This is scary since it will specify the failure of our nation step-by-step and bit-by-bit till we’re reduced to a social assortment of ignorance.Let’s examine the reason and solutions.1. Closed for Business!Faculties locate their presence tied to neighborhood standards and fiscal restraints based on the community service… or lack of. The outcome is that schools are closing at an alarming rate across the nation. The decision to close a school seldom reflects the needs of a community or, even more importantly, the demands of their students!There seems to be less concern for the demands of the communities children’s education compared to the economic needs of the positioning of their faculty or the resources available. Where’s the national government when this happens? Well, they are partly to blame. The authorities rhetoric details the demand for affordable, quality instruction while they demand that school systems adhere to particular federal mandates which tie the school administration’s hands to comply with political needs. So much for federal assistance.2. Two-Gallons of milk in a one-gallon jug! That depends on whether you are looking to teach the kids or be a daycare service. I understand, fairly harsh but examine the purpose of schools now. They take your children and house them and feed them for about 6-7 hours each day. Mostly providing them with basic discipline and food that they rarely get a t house! Oh admin it. Teachers must subject your kids in a crowded setting where security is no longer guaranteed and instruction takes a back seat to providing fundamental needs that parents are reluctant to, either uneducated to or not able to provide. Wait, what about education? Well, there’s so little time for this that caring for them takes priority over instructing them.Secondarily, because of the constraints of federally-mandated guidelines, the kids are educated in a cookie-cutter style standard of personality-limiting, creative-minimizing and individually-restrictive processes for them to their adulthood. Basic education with fundamental performance that aligns kids to basic criteria that align with everyone else’s fundamental demands. Sad as it is performed in classrooms where teachers have been pressured to”teach” more kids than one person could attend . How successful is that?3. If You Do What You’ve Always Done… You Will Get What You’ve Always Gotten!How do we expect our children to shine when their parents are minimally educated. One has to understand this cycle of poor education will produce more poorly educated children who will create more poorly-educated kids and so forth and so forth. Parents are so busy fighting to earn a living now due to a bad economy or a lack of chance that there is little time to attend to their children’s schooling at home let alone at school. Involvement is also crucial particularly when the parents are minimally educated because they lack the foresight and experience to direct a young person to the right path. It matters not if you are poor and trying hard to earn a living that doesn’t allow for time to educate your children at home OR if your well off and fight to maintain a livelihood that does not allow for a while to attend your kids in your home. In any event, the education suffers.4. I was told I was dumb. I was told I could never learn because I lacked the simple ability to comprehend or understand anything a normal person was expected to understand. Can you imagine? Well, today I am needing a doctorate in education. Highly educated holding several degrees and formally recognized because of my teaching skills and performance as an educator. So there, take that!If a child is to be challenged then the kid has to recognize their worth and value as an individual. EVERY kid is gifted and gifted in something and should be recognized for this immediately and consistently. Oh , failure happens but that is part of the lesson too. Individualized learning initiatives and platforms are crucial to the support and future of instructional success. The gifted and talented programs require a child be recognized and innovative because of their unique gift rather than the initiative available to ALL students. I feel that each child has the chance to show their gift if given the opportunity to allow it to reveal itself. Why restrict other children’s opportunity to excel because someone didn’t recognize their talents? Beyond me.
