School system should have more streaming, less ‘inclusion’

Duncan – With all the kafuffle about education now it would be a good time for all stakeholders to read America’s Education Deficit and the War on Youth by Henry A. Giroux. He says, “the decaying education system is increasingly designed to churn out drone-like future employees”.

There is too much striving for conformity. There should be more streaming to accommodate individual potential and interests.

The system is trying to frustrate all participants by inclusion.

We need teachers to concentrate on like groups and not be all things to a diversified class and be able to not do justice to any one.
