Some Thoughts on Education

The following are just some thoughts I have formed recently about education.

It is an axiom that each individual learns at a different rate and in a different style.  Yet, our educational systems are designed to have each student learn at the same rate and in the same style.

Also,if you were to take 100 randomly chosen classrooms of the same class or age group from across the country, you would find that materials available to the students in that classroom differ widely and according to the locality in the country and the economic status of the region.  Education should be a level playing field and it is not.

Finally, education should be about encouraging creativity.  But it turns out to be more about developing commonality. As a student progresses through each year of organized education, their creativity diminishes.
