Let’s face it, even before the COVID-19 crisis forced students to learn from home, traditional education left a lot to be desired.
While the process of waking up early to spend hours in a crowded classroom still worked for some students -- i.e. those who easily grasp concepts on their own, with little to no direction -- others were left feeling excluded and lost. Unfortunately, this has had a negative impact on many students’ futures.
In this article, we’ll be exploring why traditional school is becoming obsolete and what you can do to ensure your child gets the best education possible moving forward.
While there are plenty of wonderful teachers in the world, students are still falling behind in traditional school settings. In fact, over 2 million students drop out of high school alone each year. This is just in the United States.
Why does this happen? There are a multitude of factors. However, most pressing is the learning environment. Most classrooms, even today, depend greatly on the ability of the teacher. This means if a teacher isn’t effective at providing the right educational delivery to each and every student, there are some that will simply slip through the cracks.
This problem is worse for teachers who are responsible for larger classrooms; such as high schools in inner cities. In short, the success of your child when it comes to their academics weighs heavily on their teachers.
In order to remedy the shortcomings of traditional education, the dynamic itself needs to change drastically. Luckily, with online learning becoming more prevalent (especially in response to COVID-19) that change is finally here.
Students are no longer forced to learn the traditional way, and can instead get an improved education by learning at their own pace from anywhere in the world. What’s more? Online learning programs -- such as Sinousa Virtual High School -- put the student-first by making the curriculum easy to follow and accessible at any time.
