Ed Berger Posted over 3 years ago What are the advantages/disadvantages of learning models that exist outside of traditional educational institutions? There is no question that students can not grow beyond the foundations established in elementary school and built upon through life. Foundations in at least 10 disciplines that are interdisciplinary, comprehensive and fact-based are required for every student. Learning styles vary, but foundation education is essential. Those trying to kill comprehensive education and privatize schools for profit are destroying one of the best educational systems in the world.
