Relevant Information After reading the eight Opposing Viewpoint essays you selected (two of which should include statistical information), compile (in your own words) relevant information for each of the following categories. Base your responses to the following prompts on what you have learned in the Opposing Viewpoint readings or other outside resources. Cite the sources you use in APA format. 3A: Problem Restate the problem in your own words. What new paradigms will bring true improvement to public K12 education? 3B: Sub-problems List at least three sub-problems or questions related to the problem. What new methods will activate a new model to achieve true reform? How can we bring about a new paradigm and new operating systems? How to create a genuine collaborative culture system among school principals, teachers, staff, parents, community members and all other stakeholders? 3C: Problem Environment Describe the problem environment and the people affected by the problem. The current K12 public education model roots are in pre-industrial, America. The system has changed little since the first public school in America in 1635. The model is time and place driven, with group instruction delivery. Students go to a place for specified time to receive group instruction. Adults design the instruction and the system in which to deliver this instruction. Learners are expected and required to comply and learn. The current public school organizing rule is economic; the efficient use of economic resources for the maximum instruction for the least cost. The operational model is the assembly line. Students enter the “system” at about age five and are moved through the system in a continuous “assembly line” process. In thirteen years students at the end of the assembly line are graduated. Some students fall off the assembly line as dropouts or are rejected as failures. Educators apply their knowledge and skill as best they can within the current system. However, their knowledge is subordinated to the requirements of group instruction, and economic efficiencies of the assembly line model and operating system.

3D: Factors to Consider List at least three factors to consider in thinking about the problem. Public Education must be individualized, not mass produced. Students must be taught by people who they feel care for them and who the students care for and respect. Education works best when it is self paced personalized and considers the students interests. It should be community and/or neighborhood-based. Education should be immediately relevant to the student's life. Nutrition must be considered in terms of its impact on learning and education. 3E: Ambiguous Words or Phrases There may be ambiguous words or phrases in the reasoning of the sources that make it difficult to understand exactly what the writers are proposing. Identify at least two words or phrases that are critical to understanding the writers’ arguments, but which are unclear. Explain how the ambiguous use of these
