SMALL SCHOOLS

“In schools class sizes, can range from anywhere from 18 to 35 students, meaning teachers having to split their time equally between 4 to 7 groups of 5 students. Given the choice all teachers would prefer and be more productive with one group of 5 students where they would be with the one group directing and facilitating 100% of the time”.

This scenario would lead to faster learning and every student getting the attention required to excel. Students and teachers would share certain things like a pantry and common area. An ideal learning environment would be a place where students enjoy more free time to research their passions and interests and follow a curriculum of their choice based on their strengths and needs.

Homework to be completed during school hours and students perusing their interests out of school, in a way that suits them best or simply having family time without the worry of homework in the back of their mind seems far better for happier students.
