Re: I need help understanding modern schooling
The part I would find the most disturbing is the description of the classroom. I think I would go visit another school and see if that school is odd or if that is the norm (I doubt it). My dd's kindy class didn't have desks. There were stations some stations like the 'writing' station had a table to work at. The other stations were lego, blocks, books, play house, math manipulatives etc..
The part about the different types of kids I would be open minded about and see how it goes when school starts.
