Different Methods Of Education Over the Years

Education is a funny topic. There are so many different opinions. And so many people who think that their way is the only way. Or that their parents’ way was the only way. Or the only way is something that hasn’t happened yet because humanity is still learning as we go along.

Most likely, though, the best answer is a combination of the past, present, and future, and a combination of all of the variations that have been developed over time as represented by the myriad of options (both official and unofficial) that encompass the overall education spectrum over the years. Consider each of the following methods.

The Montessori Method

Learning at a Montessori school is something that many parents attest to. The methodologies are just different enough to appeal to a slightly different demographic when it comes to parenting methods. Additionally, parents that have learned at Montessori schools tend to want their children to go through the same process, just for the sake of familiarity if nothing else. Montessori teachers also tend to have loyalty to their type of program once they’ve established a routing for themselves as well

Home-Schooling

Many parents decide that homeschooling is the best for their children. In the past, there was a little bit of a stigma attached to this method, but in particular because of better online resources, parents can have a flexible yet still standardized approach to teaching their kids. There still needs to be a degree of socialization in play for younger children, but that’s often worked on by the family going out and taking field trips and doing those sorts of activities over time.

The Nature-Based Approach

An avant garde approach to schooling can be found within the constructs of little pockets of sustainable-living communal societies, if you really want to see something different in terms of education. If you go and live with the Dancing Rabbits out in Missouri, their education is completely based on learning to live off of the grid.

Off To Boarding School

Though it’s not as popular of an option in the United States as opposed to other places in the world, sending kids off to boarding school is always an option when it comes to education. Some of the best early age schools in the world are boarding schools, and that makes sense to a degree because of the lack of distractions there.

Typical K-12

Typical K-12 education is going to be through the public education system. There are lots of complaints about the low quality of education that many people get there, but it’s often the best that the government can do to ensure that every child has at least some access to learning in their formative years
