At this age and time education systems all over the world continues to face issues within and without. In America “within” the system, there is quest to employ a working curriculum, apply the best instructional strategies that will cater for students of all age groups and developmental levels. The system also pursues assessment tools (formative and summative assessment) that will clearly reflect students learning and deficit. The struggle “without” is to keep the policy makers, politicians, media and taxpayers “happy” that the schools are adopting their multimillion reforms and stipulations, complying to the rules- standards, producing competitive grades and in the meantime keeping their budget in check. Thanks to school partners and the PTSA’s, schools budget would have been struggled to death with barely enough to work with.
