|If you could create the ideal school, what would it be like?
Every parent would be supportive, and every child would just be ecstatic to learn.
... oh, and hot lunch would be good.

I'm not an administrator. I don't really have a good answer for this one. But naturally, as an adjunct instructor, I would like to see more fairness for part-time instructors. I have the same education as and as much experience as (or more than) my full time colleagues, yet I get paid a fraction of what they earn. I'd like to see deserving adjunct instructors compensated at the same rate as full time instructors, and more full time positions, instead of having schools run by part timers without security. We're expected to take our jobs seriously, so why won't schools take us seriously?
...difficult to get it right - not sure its possible actually! Ive seen some excellent examples of modern design with BSF in the UK BUT they are all flawed .....accessible and inclusive are key but a good learning environment is essential - I don't like open plan for students - too distracting! Students need to focus and concentrate - how can they with open plan classrooms, corridors, walkways and balconies??
A laptop for all, a personal place to save your work, great internet connection, whiteboards and cool creativity software like the iLife suite.....now were talking!
A core curriculum that small groups of students tackled cooperatively. Some ability grouping of the top and lower students at their levels. Allowing learning to be paced and based upon student's learning needs. Allow for faster and slower progression of all students. Enhance social learning skills.
A school founded on reason and logic, not under pressure from politics.
An ideal university would be one where a variety of learning methods were employed to meet the modern day needs of the students and fast changing shifts within society. No one methodology would be given preference over another. Students would be at the center of every decision and would be consulted regularly in developing support systems, curriculum and all aspects of the university. Luddites would not be allowed to be in charge.
A school having more emphasis on reading and writing. Due to new technologies, students in schools are paying less attention to reading and writing. In the context of my country, I would like to have reduced number of students in a school.
a giant playground where pupils gravitate to what matters most to them. We dont all need to be computer geeks or brain surgeons, some of us should be artists of every ilk.
One where children are encouraged to reach their full potential.Not all children are academic so we shouldn't try to get them all through academic subjects whilst ignoring the creative arts. Children should come out of school with the skills and tools to fit in and contribute to society
Still thinking about that one - it would be a very enjoyable stimulating environment though. The school would be free to meet the needs of the learners, not have to blindly follow a curriculum.
At the college level I would design "Montessori
schools for adults" plus some of the Oxford system where
students would become self-directed through ongoing learning centers
staffed by every discipline, perhaps even including hotel sites as well as conventional campuses. Students would take comprehensive and primarily oral dialogic examinations with a group of tutors that emerged from this process.
A studio workshop, with extensive external links.
moderate school which have the way to educate a well concept to students and also exploring their talents and social. 'cos a lot of my students feel that he can be success by his brain only without knowing hoe he should behave to others
