Absolutely not. At compassbox.com we strongly
- Schools enable
students to interact with each other, and this is an important
element in growing up, learning and becoming socially responsible
- Schools also furnish
structure and can provide a means for ensuring that students devote
time to necessary studies.
- Under proper circumstances,
schools can foster peer pressure to aid learning.
If schools were eliminated, the probable
alternative would be to have education take place in homes of students.
Although home schooling is advantageous for some children, conditions
in the homes of others would impede learning.
At compassbox.com, we want to supplement school learning, not substitute
it. We can ensure that the learning of one individual will never
be hindered by the abilities or weaknesses of others. Each student
will move at his or her own pace, unaffected by the rate of learning
of any other student.
And although, theoretically, any student in a class can ask questions,
in reality, those who are confused are often embarrassed and don't
wish to reveal their ignorance. Frequently, only the most intelligent
students dare to ask questions because they know that if they don't
understand, neither does anybody else.
With the compassbox.com system of online learning, students can
always immediately request help if something is unclear. They can
continue to show their lack of understanding until the problem is
resolved without fear of appearing dumb before their peers. The
system not only helps pinpoint where the flaw lies, but is ready
to explain again and again the precise part of the lesson that bears
on the student's weakness.
