it originally was a slang for ignorant I think it needs to be that again
@Doctor Anon privately funded, but government ran schools over here are underperforming and paying out large payments to the higher up staff.
Decentralise, but keep the central funding that is allocated to the local authorities, schools are not prohibted from having donations or fundraisers.
The private schools are those that fill the gap.
Private schools out match public schools in every aspect, I think we need to make a slow transition into all private schools with public schools only in poverty stricken areas. @NullJager
I agree that they do outstrip them.
But what we are seeing in the UK is cronyism, the government introduced "Academies" and they're just pulling most of the budget into paying the upper staffers.
Public and private have a place, I went to public school and almost all of my mates from my class and the class below, went on to get decent jobs and Masters degrees.
The thing is that where kids are not interested in academic learning there should be more of a push towards learning trades, rather than making them sit in a class all day.
Also, National Service, I'm strong believer in that being the culmination of education.
2 years of service in the armed forces or 3 in civil service.
Straighten the shitbags out, make the creme even better.
I have only gone to public schools;
I competed academically in decathlons, math, etc against public and private
On average, the private schools had much better and many more competitors.
However, I am now attending a public university
and it is renowned for its success
Well, the private schools put more into those areas, due to them being able to be more flexible with their budgets. Mainly due to lower attendance rates and higher budget per student.
A public school has to balance it all between each student.
I don't know about the UK, but the US's main educational problem most certainly stems from poor culture and student population
No Child Left Behind didn't help either
plus the push to put everyone in college is silly
Very fucking stupid.
All that it has done is make the Bachelors Degree useless and the Masters the "standard".
There should be more of a focus on trade training, construction, carpentry, etc.
especially with the "America needs immigrants to take up trade roles"
Plenty of future workers there already.
Just the push is to have those illegals outside home depot do it.
I think they tried to push everyone into college do that the general populus is in tech and high skilled levels which would progress the U.S as a technological superpower
And the immigrants would fill the low skill jobs
It's a nice theory but it's not applicable
boo on immigration
Intelligence is proven to be a 50/50 based on nature and nuture
@NullJager Before my internet cuts out in a few moments, I won't be on internet for a week, I think primary education should focus on general intelligence and then once you enter high school it becomes specialized where you choose which field you want to become a master in, be it carpenter or tech.
If your parents are dumb, without the 50 nurture you'll be dumb
But schools can nuture that extra intelligence potential
I thought it was ~70%nature
I'm gonna need a source
while I look for mine too
I think it is alteast
If I find a source before my internet cuts out as I enter the woods I'll send it
have fun in the woods
I'll probably passively look for my source, it honestly doesn't matter that much
