Flera mattetimmar i skolan, en ny plåga?

Utbildningsutskottet beslutade på torsdagen om ett tillkännagivande till regeringen, med krav om fler mattetimmar även i årskurs 7-9 med början nästa år.

Och här är en annan syn på saken:

Let me start by repeating something I said in the last post. Where we’ve shortchanged students is at the secondary level. This is where I think we’ve lost sight of the purpose of education, which is to give students a broad general background in subjects deemed necessary but which they probably won’t use, and to prepare them for life as a productive citizen. So here’s what I’d recommend: revamp high school education to give students an enjoyable way to absorb a basic general background in subjects that they probably won’t use later on, and find out what they find interesting and give them a full dose of that.

So here’s what I’d recommend – revamp high school education to give students an enjoyable way to absorb a basic general background in subjects that they probably won’t use later on, and find out what they find interesting and concentrate on doing a solid job of giving them a full dose of that. After all, that’s what we do in college – except for the enjoyable part.

We kan inte förvänta oss att alla elever kan eller vill helst ha en framtid som programmerare eller vetenskapsman.
