No matter how good or bad our educational system is, we should always strive to make it better. We should always strive to integrate new technologies into the classroom. We should always try and find better ways to balance classroom instruction and testing. Educating our children is one of the most important jobs we have both as parents and as a society. We should never be content.
I believe pushing people too hard, especially the younger generations, will cause an opposite effect rather than a good one. Teenagers are known to rebel so rather than force them into a position they may not like, try and reason, or open more oppurtunities for them so they can see the good they could do and fun they can have with education.
