Education: A System for Sorting or for Learning? — Whole Child Education

Education: A System for Sorting or for Learning? — Whole Child Education:

"Caught up in the middle of the debates and discussions around educational reform over the past few years lies a fundamental difference in how people view education. Is it a system designed for sorting or is it a system designed for learning?

Many of the reforms and innovations that are proposed appear to slot education into the sorting category rather than the learning category. Whether it is an emphasis on high-stakes testing or the expansion of fast-track teacher training programs, both of these education trends appear to be designed to test and label rather than to help them learn and grow."
