4 "Benefits" of Traditional Education

1. It keeps you busy.

On top of spending 8 hours a day inside a building, students get to go home with plenty to occupy their evening. Although it's been widely mandated that students only get 1 hour of homework on average each weeknight, most high school students are lucky enough to go home with at least 2 hours of homework! The standard, endorsed by the National Education Association and the National Parent-Teacher Association, is the 10 minute rule. 1st graders can have up to 10 minutes of homework a night, 20 minutes for 2nd graders, and 120 minutes for 12th graders. This makes perfect sense, but oftentimes teachers aren't communicating across different content areas. Students may very well be gifted more than the recommended amount of work to last them through the night.

Approaching Academics at Makarios Community School

Approaching Academics at Makarios Community School

Just how do we approach academics at Makarios Community School? In her recent blog, Jannica Morton shared several points of how a Democratic Free School is similar to Finland's #1 internationally ranked education system. Before ever reading anything about Finland’s major shift, I began to explore educational alternatives which eventually lead to the creation of Makarios Community School, the first Democratic Free School in the Dallas Fort Worth area.

The University Model and Why it Works

Why?

The university model of education requires students to do the majority of the learning on their own, and most don’t know how. They’ve spent four years spending 35 hours a week in a classroom where the teacher tells them what is important and what will be on the test. Then they go home and cram to remember that information long enough to pass.

Then they go to college and take 4-5 classes about 3 hours long. They think it will be a breeze (12-15 hours), but those courses are condensed. Instead of a year, they are learning the same amount of material in a semester. Professors don’t ‘teach’ the material, they use class time to reinforce what students studied on their own in textbooks and videos the prior week and answer questions to clarify understanding and show correlations between different pieces.

Make the Right Choice the Easy Choice

In theory, self-directed learning should be very natural and very easy. As a lifelong unschooler, I shouldn’t even have to think about it. After all, you will always be educating yourself, whether you try to or not and whether you like it or not. But the unavoidable instinct to follow curiosity is only fifty percent of it; it’s too easy to ignore your instincts.

It’s for the kids!

One of our founding principles is that the students must desire to be a part of the Makarios community. Without their personal buy-in, the educational model fails. The key is to help the students discover their passion. In an earlier blog this year, I shared how I had come full circle in trusting the instincts of my own children’s innate curiosity to live a lifestyle of learning. Makarios mentors model a lifestyle of learning everyday through short lectures and experiments that peak the interest of students from 5 to 15 (our oldest student this year). Mentors meet monthly to discuss what we are learning and sharing as well as what we have observed in our students over the previous weeks. We plan and strategize about how to engage students that have yet to discover a topic or subject that they become so engrossed in that it’s difficult to put it down at the end of the day.
