Open Access Graduate Research Paper
If there is one idea that educators today might agree on, it's the idea that no one program will ever begin to fit the needs of all students. Students learn under different circumstances, in different atmospheres, and in different ways. Yet American education for many years has tried to teach every child in the same way and at the same time. Our present model of education has prevailed for many years. The format of a single school serving a local community dates back to earlier centuries in American history. It was sufficient for local community members in the early 1900's to have one general store and one single public stable. The conventional school was not designed for its present day responsibilities.
