The Perfect School

I had a dream this morning of the perfect school. Hubby and I talked about it a bit, and we made some interesting conclusions about control versus freedom. Also, we discussed choice and the definition of a “good” and “bad” education.

Is there such thing as a perfect school? If there were, what would it be like? We, in our society, talk about “fixing” our schools by reducing the gap between the achievers and the non-acheivers, where the ultimate goal is for everyone to graduate and pass tests. Is that what we really want? Is this what a perfect school system is – a place where everyone gets a good grade? What is the true measure of school success? And, is it even possible to create a formal educational system in such a way that everyone can get what they need (as opposed to what people want the children to deliver)?

If it were up to you to create a school that fit you, or your kids, perfectly, what would it look like?

The next question is, what would happen if everyone asked themselves this question, then made it happen?
