Educational Article: Why It's Time to Eliminate Class Schedules

The Educational Article: "Why It's Time to Eliminate Class Schedules" poses an interesting question. The author asks "I wonder if their obsession with grades comes from an unexpected source: the way we schedule their classes."

high.schoolThe author continues "What if there was no schedule? What if students were left with a list of coyly worded benchmarks targeted at creating quality humans, and we just waited to see what they could do? What if teachers were seen as mentors for projects designed to help students meet those benchmarks? What if the students initiated these projects and the teachers spent their time recording TED-style talks that would serve as inspiration and help students generate benchmark-related ideas?"

I believe these are interesting thought provoking questions. I recommend checking out The Educational Article: "Why It's Time to Eliminate Class Schedules"
