Schools must prepare young people for life. Schools must give students the basic skills which will be needed in order to function in society. This is extremely crucial in the fact that it deters individuals from destruction. School must promote individuals to become critical thinkers and problem solvers, so that they can be equipped and ready to handle difficulties which arise in this ever-changing world. Learning how to think crucially can allot the learner to find various solutions to the problems they may encounter daily. Finally, schools should provide the learner with opportunities for intellectual, cultural, and physical experiences which are modified to the needs and abilities of the individual student and society. As society changes, then schools should change and adapt to current societal outlooks.

I think instruction should be geared towards motivating students to enjoy learning different types of curriculum. By relating curriculum to their interest or prior experiences, students will not lose focus when learning and become actively involved in the learning process.
