Heather Carpenter Posted over 1 year ago Reforming the education system to incorporate new findings about children Reforming the educational system is a must. I think starting at a different level should be looked at along with sleep and individualism. I never understood why teachers are one of the lower paying professions but are instrumental in educating the children for the future. Our society is backwards, we pay athletes a substantial income that the water boy probably makes more than some teachers. I do agree changing sleep habits and evaluating the individual and education level they should be at will make for a better system. But when you have teachers with minimal test scores on SAT or ACT test, how do we expect them to help our children. The system needs to be reformed starting with how one qualifies to become a teacher. Another important factor our the children's parents. If the child is not getting enough sleep, is the child getting the right parenting? I hope I am not too far off from what everyone is stating. I find this site very interesting.
