[x] Educational Entrustment

Another example of an entrusted form of self-government would be the social entrustment of our educational industry. Education could be entrusted in various ways.  It could be entrusted along grade levels or subjects.  It could also be applied in a tailored way to the needs of the student and the community that it is intended to service.

By entrusting together our educational interests and concerns, we would be bringing together the students with their teachers in ways that would allow teachers to maximize their creative teaching potential. This would allow them to develop new pedagogies and curriculums that could be tailored to the particular need of each student and the type of degree that they were seeking.

At the primary and secondary levels of education, educational trusts would bring together the parents, students, teachers, schools and educational institutions to be able to provide the best educational experience for all concerned. At the higher levels of education, educational trusts would become educational environments in which the student would be able to immerse him or herself in the subject until they had achieved what would be required for the type of degree that they were seeking.

    I completely agree. With how large classroom sizes have become in public schools especially, there is not a lot of one on one attention for students. School systems seem to shove students in and out and do not really care if they graduate or even make it to college. I believe school systems need to shrink classroom sizes. From my own experiences in a small classroom setting, I did much better than in a larger class size. Not only did I connect better with the teacher, but the subject became more interesting due to the teachers opinions on the subject.

    Primary and Secondary schools are the stages of children’s lives when they need their parents the most. Allowing educational entrustment would help the parents be more involved in their child’s life when they need it the most. It would also help regulate what their children are learning, instead of leaving it all to the government, which can make certain educational decisions the parent might not approve of. On another note, educational entrustment would work even greater for high school because that is when students begin to gain independence, their own point of view of life, and how they want to do things. Allowing educational entrustment would let students show their interests, exercise their independence, and bring out their creative side which would result in strong, confident teenagers who have a sense of leadership. This would help teenagers grow confident because they will be treated as adults, by being allowed to communicate with the teacher how they think curriculums should be run and allowing room for a compromise. This not only creates high social skills in students, but it would also make school a more fun and peaceful place for all school members involved.

    Trust is a powerful thing, because it can either cause great results or prevent great results from occurring. Unfortunately, many teachers and students don’t have trust between each other and that deprives children from their potential of learning. I believe the way teachers are taught to conduct children is the reason for this. For example, parents dominate their children because it is their responsibility to guide them, and children sometimes get angry, but always trust them because they know their parents care about them. On the other hand, teachers dominate their students but students, without knowing if they care or not, don’t trust them because they feel controlled without cause. This results in a deprivation of the students learning capabilities. However, educational entrustment will allow students to go to an eye-to-eye level with their teachers and help them work together, which will allow trust to occur between students and teachers.

    During a child’s primary and secondary levels of education, the role of entrustment between the teachers, parents, and student are crucial. The importance lies in the fact that it is through schooling and parental involvement that a child gains the habits and mentality needed to grow into a self sufficient adult. Without such a supportive partnership, a student is deprived of their right to an educationally stimulating environment. It is at this time when a student feels properly prepared to dedicate their time to higher education.

    Entrustment begins the second a child starts primary and secondary school. It is important to keep the bond with the parents and teacher to keep a bright future ahead for the child. It is also important for the student to feel comfortable around where they are learning, so yes individual help is required to help the student get passed the lesson. If the student is learning and enjoying being taught from their teacher, it is the parents job to be just as educationally involved as the student.

    As I see it, the main problem with the current education system is that it has become too political. It is no longer about what needs to be done in the name of improving education or for the sake thereof. This point was cerainly brouhg to light during the last LACCD and LAUSD elections and the corruption that was brought to light by the media on both fronts. These people who are elected to serve as Trustees and Board Members are no longer using their positions to enhance education but rather their own poitical ambitions, and in doing so, favoring special interests whenever necessary to achive those goals.
