How can we build a better educational system?
You build a better educational system from the ground up and with the realistic standards for everyone. You can only renovate an old building so many times before the ole construction/technology gives way and you have to build anew. However keep the main idea (a space for learning with 1 teacher who taught the SAME things to ALL of the children). Where we have gone wrong Is three-fold 1.) We have allowed too much VARIATION on WHAT Is being taught 2.) No Clear PLANs were given on HOW to TEACH it 3.)Yet we then expect for ALL recipients to know the SAME information. How jacked up is that!? This Is exactly why NCLB was doomed from the start it followed the same main idea as our failing federal-state edu. system. Fed. = Teacher & State = Student. Imagine a teacher tells a mixed ability class "Learn U.S. History", gives ea. a textbook "this is what you need to know", & expects them all to earn straight A's on the test. We Need natinal standards a nationwide plan for all states to follow ( parent's & kids should be required review this ea. Yr. , Mandatory bi-weekly parental involvement (if they don't want others to tell them how to raise their child then lend a hand ) , options for those who may not want to go to college, more of a early greek/montessouri tale on letting the child led from interest or strength with guidance (teacher-coach), incorporate real life practice on all levels out of the classroom, let them fail (it's called trial&error), & last but not least require all students all ages to be involved in local gov. they should be able to understand WHY & not just WHAT so they have a purpose.

How can we build a better educational system?
Yes to many of the previous posts, with a nod to both Lawren (elimination of gov. monopoly) and Tanka ( scientific method of understanding the root cause), however I must disagree w/ Tanka's reason/purpose of education. Life as each person lives it Is driven (whether they choose to acknowledge it or not) by survival. Survival of self, offspring, or idea. Survival Is then dictated by ONE thing only, NECESSITY. Necessity does not mean 'wants' , but those gained along the road of necessity are welcomed. Despite outcries on all fronts education has lost it's place as a necessity. Our society has become so overconfident in its success it's thrown it's roots to the wayside, like the teen who gets their drivers license/car & leave w/out thanking the parents that taught them... Oops! Only they forgot gas money! Now they must figure out how to apologize, humble themselves to ask for money, get back on the parents good side to ensure a continued flow, while managing to retain dignity inspite of an elementary mistake. Now multly that by all adults in gov. & citizens & we have our TRUE ROOT problem who have by necessity been successful and passed on the fruits of that success in the raising of their children all the while ignoring the fact that by perfecting life for said children they have eliminated the necessity for the same education realizing in hindsight the need to educate/fuel their success. To solve this does not mean drill the same "you need a good edu. to get a good job" because for many kids it's not a necessity with rich parents = pay 4 erything or poor ones = teach welfare by example & both demand protection for their child fom personal accountability). The beginning to a solution Is for society to agree that edu. IS a NECESSITY to prolonged SURVIVAL and treat it as such & not an inconvenience between birth & adulthood. Then you must admit mistakes & rebuild from scratch. New clients = new needs = new product. CocaCola did not make Clear Coke it made Sprite.
