Depending on who you ask, the School System in the US is either at a disarray or doing okay. The facts is that academic skills of American students and achievement still way behind that of their students in many other countries. That is depending on who you ask, politicians or parents of course! When it is all said and done, many studies put the America at a mediocre 38th place out of 71 countries in math and 24th in science. Among the 35 members of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, which sponsors the PISA initiative, the U.S. ranked 30th in math and 19th in science. In a recent article published at [dcl=6727] many parents are taking matters into their own hands. This means a number of things one up-and-coming trend that politicians in local municipalities are very afraid of is homeschooled. With that said, given the fact that in a lot of households nowadays both parents have jobs this is a trend that would have limited impact.
Dr. KathyKoch, the president of Celebrate Kids, Inc., has done just that andinfluenced hundreds of parents in more than 30 countries with her messages, seminars, and other platforms. Dr. KathyKoch is a regular guest and keynote speaker at [dcl=6725] where she promotes and bringsawareness to homeschooling your children.
Another way that home school pioneers are pushing their agentda is with tutoring. In a recent interview the president of [dcl=6728], he blamed the system and particularly the politicians for the downfall of the US educational system. The issues is the system not the money. He has seen third worlddeveloping countries edge the US in many fronts by simply implementing higher standards and accountability. Something the liberal driven agenda of the left does not believe. In many places outside the US students who don’t meet the academic criteria are not onlyleft back but also shame in a way that forces students of all grades to pay attention to school. This allows educators to constantly scale up the curriculum and in return race the academic score of the students.
This is a contradiction to the mentality of US politicians and teachers who think in honoring unevenness and disruptive behavior with participation awards and accolades. Whatis evenworse is the awarding of passing grades to kids that don’t meet the academic criteria.
