Recently I have found problems

1. Parents are not involved enough.

2. Schools are closing left and right.

3. Our schools are overcrowded.

4. Technology comes with its downsides.

5. There is a lack of diversity in gifted education.

6. School spending is stagnant, even in our improving economy.

7. There is a lack of teacher education innovation.

8. 80 percent of students are graduating high school...yet less than half of these students are ready for what's next.

9. Some students are lost to the school-to-prison pipeline.

10. There is a nationwide college-gender gap, and surprisingly, we are not focusing on it.

Meanwhile you can find any information in google, that why now education isn't important, most important thing is your motivation for self development. Also some companies can give to you education. I understand my education is my problem and I can solution it. Good luck you!

There are various problems that exist with the education system today, and hence it needs to undergo a massive change. The most significant problem is that the modern education system often uproots the children from the real practical world. In other words, it makes them adjust in a totally artificial world throughout their school as a result of which the students often receive a mental shock upon entering the practical world.

This usually makes them feel like they have not really achieved anything during their schooling and can have a negative impact on their self-confidence in the real world.

2. We need to consider how school security measures affect students.

2. We are still wrestling the achievement gap.

The problem lies in the fact that children are not taught about their extensive sexualities. for example, I am a vegan pansexual, and I didn't even know what that meant until a few days ago. for the record, I am 59 years old, so it's saddening that I didn't know who I was until now. the education system must be crushed, and a totalitarian communist regime must be imposed. long live Stalin.

I believe that technolodgy will only teach those who are educated. I believe humanity will teach everyone. I believe both technolodgy ,and humanity are of equal importantance.Here is a fact written in 2010,from the medical boasrd af Docctors.

I believe that technolodgy will only teach those who are educated. I believe humanity will teach
The second leading cause of death in teenagers "is SUICIDE". Suicide is THE NUMBER ONE CAUSE OF DEATH IN COLLEGE STUDENTS. I think technolodgy has caused social retardation. I guess the best way to show my example was taught my first phycology course phy,101...Nature VS Nurture.

It's so boring. Why can't it be more fun (I'm mostly taking about math like pre-algebra and up).

The education system in US is heterogeneous. Primary and secondary public schools do not always inspire confidence. They offer a set of basic subjects that a gifted student is likely to find insufficient.

Parents who predict a successful career for their children prefer to send them to private schools. However, American universities and colleges, both private and public, crown the world rankings from year to year. They combine a democratic educational process and a high level of education, so a dedicated student can be sure that he will get exactly what he needs from school.

As for me, the Educational System thinks a lot about the system and too little about the education and students themselves. Also, different theories have different views about inequalities in education.

I think the main problem is inconsistency with modern conditions, you can read more about that in my article at Samedaypapers. Also, I would add a lack of teacher education innovation and diversity in gifted education, as Nick said.
