Surprising and hopeful
Often people say "The school system is broken." But what is the school system?
Answer: a follow-the-schedule method that solves the problem of the-one and the-many in production.
Fixing the school system means changing the method from the follow-the-schedule method invented by Frederick Winslow Taylor, to another method.
Essentially, school districts are trying to solve the WRONG problem and an IMPOSSIBLE problem: get students, who are all different, to fit into a one-size-fits-all follow-the-schedule method.
It is impossible to teach a student any better:
- who has already learned the lesson; or,
- Is unready for the lesson
There is no way around this. We must (all together now) change the method.
This means, ipso-facto, changing the problem to the right problem of the-one and the-many that a new method must solve.
