    Public School Utopia? Let's Make This Vision for Education a Reality via magazine.good.is

    This article brought me to tears in a number of places thinking how great it would be to have more public schools like this. I am in my early 30's and have been going to college for the first time these last few years and while it is never productive to think "if only" I understand the importance of teachers teaching depth over breadth and ensuring children leaving school with skills. The typical public school education I received afforded me jobs making little above minimum wage, no hopes for real career advancement and no time or life left for personal enrichment. On top of this I had always been under the misguidance that math and science were not only beyond my ability but to even entertain the idea would be a joke. I am now a biology major and absolutely love every minute of my classes and I have many teachers that inspire and take the time to explain concepts thoroughly. I've thought many times that when I graduate I'd like to get a masters in education to teach at public schools, so that way other children wouldn't have to wonder "if only" and can be thoroughly invigorated daily by the joy of learning.
