Students to decide what they want to learn

By johnboy - 14 December 2005 3

ABC Online is reporting Vicki Dunne’s reaction to an education discussion paper which “calls for ACT students to have an equal partnership with teachers in deciding what they learn.”

Vicki think parents should be alarmed.

Personally I think these systems can work, but they require extremely motivated teachers with lots of resources.

Might be better to stick to a more structured approach in the public system.

What’s Your opinion?

Orana School out in Weston is a Rudolf Steiner school.

Rudolf Steiner schools work on this principal. Not sure if there are any in the ACT. They do require lots of resources, which usually results in them charging exhorbitant fees.

Perhaps eleven-year-olds are too young for this, but consultation between years 10 – 12 might be a step in the right direction. One would think that certain guidleines would have to be laid out as to what can and cannot be studied, but I think it would be a terrific way of keeping students interested in their schoolwork.
