Education is a field characterized by gaps: Teachers and school administrators view scholars with suspicion as they believe scholars are disconnected from the realities of the classroom. Scholars are suspicious of teachers and school administrators as they believe educators are unsystematic in their work. Educational theorists advocate for reform of schooling so that students are prepared for the complex problems of the modern world, but the policy makers insist on using tests to measure learning.


Agreed with reforming so people are better prepared, this should not simply be academically but also by ensuring education is relevant absenteeism can be reduced as education is relevent, there are clear expectations as to behaviour, matched in the work place.

Given the issues with the NHS I would make first aid compulsory as a subject, updated every 3 years so in the uk students start secondary at 11 and leave at 18. so they would learn first aid at 11, 14, and 17, as usually the certificate lasts 3 years. this would give them useful skills, same would go for health and safety and handling of chemicals, both would be compulsory part of undertaking science courses, you then get the certificate to go along side the academic qualification.
