Relevant Education: A New Way Forward

August 17, 2011

In my last post, “Following Up on the Financial Crisis,” I called for a complete makeover of our education system with a focus on relevant teaching methods. The plan for this column was to continue where I left off, elaborating on the importance of a relevant curriculum. But yesterday, in a moment of serendipity, I stumbled upon an Edutopia article by David Wees entitled, “Mathematics Education: A Way Forward.”

While more narrowly focused on the subject of mathematics, Mr. Wees’ hypothesis is the exact same as mine, and to be honest, I believe his article sheds light on the matter with more clarity than I could do here. So, without further ado, I urge you to click the above link and read Mr. Wees’ article.
