In America, the generation that is youngest will face landscapes in their social, economic, and cultural life. When having a comparison with their parents and grandparents, they will have to struggle in order to get a place in the economy where they will be in a position of sustaining themselves together with their families. The way that they will be living will not is the same as the life that people are living today. Thus, the system of education needs to have some changes so that the new generation will be in a better position of navigating in the changes in the ways of living.
The changes in education need to start in the states. However, it can be difficult to put some specific changes in the level but using the right strategies and people being patient will help in accomplishing any set goal. There are given reasons why changes are needed in the education system. Each person cannot deny that the changes in the world are happening rapidly. The transformations in places of work and in the economy are mostly brought about by the introduction of technology and globalization. They have also led to changes in the cultural and social lives of families.
When compared to what was happening in the education system while our grandparents were learning and what is taking place today, there are many changes. However, the same grandparents may be comfortable learning in what the schools have to offer even today. There are changes in the furniture in the classroom, and putting in mind that currently, the internet is the main tool that children use for reference instead of using the encyclopedia.
When looking at the student’s body, it is diverse in many ways. The use of tablets and computers are a replacement of notebooks. However, the changes cannot be seen in the structure of learning institutions which is somehow the same with what used to happen in the past. There are no major changes in the workforce design, the basic system that is used for delivering instructions, and even the content that is transferred to the learner. It is interesting that if a meeting could be held with different successive generations, the comparisons of their high school transcripts will be an easy task because the subjects are the same.
Most people are not aware that the education structure that is used in America today was designed a century ago. During the time, agriculture was the main activity in places of work and not all the children who started elementary school was able to join high school. Having thought of how the lives of young people today will be when compared with what happened in the past; there is a need for some changes. The children today will require getting a place to succeed in an economy that is no longer ruled by agricultural activities or even manufacturing activities.
In the case that education in America will help the families in supporting the development of the kids, then there is a need for some changes to be made. The consideration needs to be on major changes in the structure to provide relationships that are supportive and strong among the different stakeholders in the country.
