Education Curriculum Change Request

What are the chances that we can tailor the curriculum to be more hands-on? Can we show kids where and how to use Math? Can we show them and demonstrate where and when being able to read and write well becomes important? Can we demonstrate where not knowing History created problems? Can we show them where, when and why it is important to know Science and the ability to apply it? Can we hire more engineers to do practical math/science teaching? People with actual experience in making things happen. The cost would be higher than simply hiring teachers (who have no real experience) straight out of the UofA, however, the quality of learning could improve. This also would make teaching a more competitive career that people might look forward to doing for more than 1 yr. Let's higher commercial managers who have experience delivering results to run the schools, instead of the PhD guy who claims he can deliver for $140K per year (w/no real experience). Can we introduce more team work and projects that actually deliver physical deliverables that kids can see? How about real life lessons, like finance, business, psychology, etc? What are we doing to keep kids interested in school? For kids with ESL, we should consider doing nothing but English Language teaching for the first 2-3 yrs. They would have an easier time picking up the other disciplines once they know english. How about getting parents to present weekly on different careers and what they entail. What kinds of things do we do?
