The education system is dynamic and keeps on changing from time to time. The system of admitting education in most educational centers has shown some advancements over a long period. Due to these changes, the schools have also generally changed from the mode of administration to how it is managed. However, only some of the schools have adapted to the new methods, which include educational reforms like the high graduation requirements, high testing of the skills and the parents, teachers and learner coordination. An example is the early college high school which employs this model. This paper translates the models that are used in early college high schools to more public schools across the United States.
There is a significant viability and importance to expanding this model to more public schools across the united states of America. Some of the benefits and viability include preparing students for the workforce, increasing graduation rates, and providing opportunities for students to earn college credit. This will ensure that the quality of the education installed to the learners is of a high notch. When the model of testing the skills of both the students and the beginner’s teachers is employed, the output in the educational centers will be quality (Jacobs, 2016). Some of the challenges of expanding the models found in the article to more public schools across the United States include the cost of implementing the programs and the need for teacher buy-in. More experts are required to facilitate a successive transition.
Another reason why there is a viability to change to more public schools is that they are based on the educational reforms in the educational centers. There are many potential advantages of educational reforms from the early college schools in the article. Some advantages of these educational reforms include improved student outcomes, increased equity and access to education, and increased efficiency and accountability in the education system. Expanding to this model drives the force of management in educational centers. However, educational reforms can also have potential disadvantages, such as disruptive effects on the education system and on students, teachers, and families, unintended consequences, and implementation challenges (Jacobs, 2016). The viability of changing to the models that are used in early college schools requires compactness and commitment to bear the tradition of change.
According to the benefits of the models of how early college schools are run, it is the right time to move schools in this direction. The model of education presented in the article is feasible. This model’s advantages in education make it a requirement to take this initiative. The advantages are that it would promote creativity to the student or the learners. They would also develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills. It would also give students a better understanding of how the real world works, motivating them as they interact with the world while still in school. The drawbacks are that it would be expensive to implement and require a lot of teacher training. This would call for a submission to all the staff to make it successful.
In conclusion, the early college schools’ models help and direct the learners to be self-driven. At the Salt Lake City college schools, there are no bells. The students show up at the expected time to the classrooms. They can also decide to have classrooms through the online so-called self-paced online lessons. The models summons the teachers to be available to students every time. From early college schools, the learners say that if they face any confusion in class, the teachers do not slow down and never hesitate to help them where they are stuck. The community college classes and those of the career tech are taught face to face. Using all these models benefits the learners, further explaining the need to move public schools in this direction.
