After my last historical breakdown post; I thought it would be helpful to offer a timeline as a visual-aid. I am a visual and audio learner. Because of that, sometimes seeing things laid helps me to gain a better understanding. A timeline is a perfect example of a visual representation of complicated material. Especially when you see how much time passes through the progression of our education system.
I urge you, after looking through this timeline, please take a few moments to go back and read Common Core Part 2: The History of Education in America.
Timeline of Education
As you can see there is not just one occurrence that has influenced our educational history in America. Our timeline is scattered and pieced together after trial and error. If there is one thing that is evident, it is that education is not a one-size fit all model. Not everyone learns the same way. Not everyone is meant to sit behind a desk all day.
Look Out For Part 3
I hope this helps everyone as much as it has helped me to make it. Please keep a look out for the next part in the mini series; Common Core Part 3: Is It Benefiting Our Children.
