Why We Need to Challenge Educational Status Quo

“In the early 1800s, Prussia created a top-down model of education to educate the masses with an emphasis on quantity not quality. This same model was imported to the United States in the mid 1800s, and now 150 years later, our country’s education system continues to teach children in the same form, fashion and formula created generations ago.

This model of education was brilliant for the industrial revolution, but in today’s world it is wholly unacceptable. Our country’s inability to improve the way in which we teach and reach students is a result of those who are wedded in defense of the status quo.”
