2 Introd uction The Boston Latin School welcomed pupils from all around the world in 1635. Despite the fact that this school is the oldest public school in the United States, the school's daily schedule is far from what a modern student would encounter. For the colonists, the first school in the country encouraged family, community, and religion ("11 Facts About the History of Education in America", 2019). Public schools have changed dramatically since those early days of education. In the 1600s, a modern public school site faced problems that were unheard of. The social concerns that kids will confront in 2020 led me to use this critical thinking project to investigate the future of classrooms in the United States. I wanted to examine what adjustments will increase academic attainment over the next few decades in particular. The public school has changed tremendously during the previous three centuries. Is it time for a new start? When I first started this initiative, I believed that public schools needed to be completely revamped. The Evolution of My Thesis During the research process, the research thesis for this project evolved drastically. My initial point was that it was past time for public schools to modernise the teaching experience. The scope of the difficulties confronting today's public schools was immediately revealed through research. Public schools are plagued by a number of problems, ranging from violence to educational standards. To deal with any problem, you'll need to use precision and accuracy in your thoughts. However, in keeping with my thesis, I continued to look for a tool that could help districts across the country improve. The progression of my thesis during this critical thinking activity is seen below. PUBLIC
3 My first thesis is that, even with increasing financing, public schools need to be retooled to meet the needs of today's students. Final Thesis: Public schools, which are dealing with a range of social and societal concerns, require community participation in order to promote student accomplishment. Significance Understanding the function of education in society is the first step toward understanding public schools. The country's first schools were solely dedicated to fostering community, religion, and societal benefit. While they did teach reading, the majority of academic disciplines were not covered. Instead, public schools emphasised the value of education before allowing students to pursue the areas that they required to accomplish. By the 1900s, thirty-one states had established some sort of public education that focused on teaching the fundamentals of arithmetic, science, and literature ("11 Facts About the History of Education in America", 2019).
