Last night, while attending high school maturity, I saw something that certainly exemplifies one of the biggest problems in public education. The administrator followed the protocol that did not match the settings. This mantra is precisely what our public education systems have to struggle to face in meeting the needs of today's children.
The situation was that for most diplomas the line of students expected their diploma (or mock diploma). The name of the student was called, the family cheered, then the student passed, shook hands with the boss, hugged him or shook hands with another teacher or administrator, or twice, then paused to take his picture. The system seemed perfect for the first time; the names quickly and in most cases clearly read and the students quickly passed through the glove of adults. But the problem came when it came to photography. Each student had to stand, smile, and have to wait for the fatal click. This lasted longer than reading individual names, so it was very fast between name-reading and photography. Yet despite the fact that they were looking for more people to read the names, none of them improved this problem, so the bottleneck increased. Finally, the reader would stop the names, and everyone would wait a few moments when the bottleneck scattered. So every reader followed the exact procedure they gave them.
But how hard would this adjustment be? Instead of knocking the names faster (and staring at families who lived for more than 0.05 seconds), the reader read and stopped, read, and paused. Not just the bottleneck has never been created, the parents can conquer a little, without suppressing the name of the next student. And we should not have to hang out 20 kids waiting for their photos (and you should have seen what happened when the photographer needed a new movie!)
As I said, this problem is typical of the public education system today. While there are excellent teachers in the field today – and I was lucky enough to have more than one classroom – there are some who follow the line and do not accept it despite the demands of individual children. They refuse to adapt, change, or think about themselves. Others are more like a group of administrators sitting behind the reader and just lazy (or scared of changes?) To make a suggestion.
Let me tell you again – there are some excellent teachers who are genuinely caring for their students and who are willing to change things for the benefit of the classroom. But there are some who enter the system and let them absorb the whole teaching mode, who are unwilling to adapt and adapt. The bottlenecks created by such people will be much worse than the long silence in the graduation.
