1. Strongly disagree.
2. Strongly disagree.
3. Question is confusing…”children should be made to revise?” Not sure
4. Agree.
5. Disagree. Activities and learning can be done cooperatively.
6. Disagree. Education and many school systems are currently undergoing major transitions and growth because schools are not preparing children for the real work of work.
7.Agree
8. Disagree. I started school formerly at 5. (1956-57). I knew and could spell and write my name, names of my parents, address, phone number, was tested and read on a 3rd grade level! When parents work with their children and prepare them for a formal school environment, the children are hungry for learning. I learned to write cursively at 6 and was told “not to” by teachers because I was “moving faster than they wanted me to go”.
9. Strongly disagree. Children don’t know ‘formality’. That’s an adult word. All you have to do is present the opportunity to children to learn – what do they know of ‘formality. In my school we have to have our standards posted on the board along with our objectives. I introduced these to my students and told them why we were doing this and they were excited about it. Their parents were excited, because now they knew what the state of TN required and they knew from their children’s notebooks, that they were writing down each week what our objectives and goals were and then if we accomplished them or not.
10. Agree. However, depending upon your school, the educational experience of the parents, some might not be able to be ‘taught’ how to help. Ex. When my daughter was in school, I was not able to help her in Algebra. She knew more about it than I did – however, we had Homework Hotline, Tutors, etc. that were available to assist students. Parents should be able to participate when they can – but schools should provide as much outside assistance to ensure the students get the help they need.
11. Strongly disagree. No school day can be structured around play – not and be able to compete with other schools of the world. We need play – but we need active, engaged learning.
12. Disagree. Adults should provide a variety of sources for children to enjoy within a setting and yes, they should ‘go for it’ however, adults need to supervise ‘how to’ and initiate cooperative play
13.Agree. Formal education is necessary for more than just preparing students for adulthood. It is the sturcture by which we matriculate from school to school, degree to degree. The older we get , the more educational needs are met for the working student and it becomes non-traditional (students obtaining degrees online).
14. Agree. A child does not know and is unable to determine what he needs to know in the world, or how to compete. It is about how the child will learn and be prepared to compete in the world. How the child will obtain a way of life, earn a living, participate in the economical structure of the place in which he lives, and be a willing consumer and all around good citizen.

I think the last question answers all the rest. In my opinion we make them grow to fast. That is why when they reach to age of 14 they don’t want to listen ant more. We have turned them into adults with opinions of their own and become hard to control. Children need time to play and interact to find a path they wish to go down. Then the desire to learn will come natural. I feel we push them too young and then we regret it. Then when they get older and should be accounted for responsibility they want to act like a child because they missed it growing up.

1 not to an extreme
2 yes
3 no
4 no informal at their own pace
5 yes
6 no they are pushed too hard to young
7 no they choose what interests them at the time If pushed rebel
8 yes hasn’t had enough time to get to know himself much less what he wants in years to come
9 yes
10 They should have been taught already in their years in school but like I said were pushed too young themselves now with no one to push them they can take the time to do what they missed growing up Play
11 make every thing fun and what they are ready to learn they will
12 yes with rules and boundaries
13 yes but I feel school should start at the age 10 graduate at the age 22 and start college at the age 25 by then they have a better chance of what their looking for in life. No one should get married before the age
14 Yes I do

15 Most teachers are as young as their students We need time to play when we are young so when we reach the age of thirty we pretty well know what we want in life.
