Technology Integration in K12 Education in Taiwan and the United States

November 5, 2011 | Author: | Posted in K-12 Education

Just as the medical profession manages symptoms through medication, politicians manage the education system by turning a blind (ignorant?) eye to the way education manages its ills. These “solutions” are most easily seen in urban areas. Politicians, through the power of legislation, expect schools to have all students performing at or above grade level which is what the “average” child is expected to know or do. There are children who can and do, as well as children who can’t and don’t. All schools are NOT equal, never can be, as long as we have the freedoms to choose where we live and what we do with our personal resources. All children are NOT equal, never will be, in experiential readiness, developmental readiness, native ability, talents and skills or interests. When we examine the performance of schools, we must consider many things not entering into formulas for success.
