The Revolution In Education
A Better Education System

Today, experts tell students how to prepare for life

Tomorrow, students will tell the experts what they need to be happy, successful, and prosperous in life.

They can do this by systematically reading nonfiction to discover their interests and plan their career.


              a. What jobs are available.
              b. Where they are  located.
              c. What they pay. 

              d. What is the demand for the job, both now and for the future.
              e. What Skills and Identity Traits are necessary for the job.
              f.  What and Where training is available for the job
              g.  What are the advantages and disadvantages of the job.
              h.  And, much, much more.

    1. Systematically means to

                a.  read from each nonfiction category
                b.  keep a record of what they read
                c.  prioritize the interest level of each book or material on a 1 - 10 scale.

    1. Nonfiction catalogues information in a way that permits students to efficiently survey various occupation related topics, discover their interests, and plan their occupation. 
    2. Interest is an indicator of aptitude.  If a student likes something, there is a very good chance that they are good at it.
    3. Scope and Sequence permits a student to prepare for life in the 5th Grade.  For example, if a student wants to become an electrician, s/he can begin a course of study that includes all the math, vocabulary, spelling, study skills, science, history, language skills, art, music, and so on, for that occupation.
    4. Students can match reading material with a Job. 

    5. Students can select comfortable reading material.

    6. Students can enjoy occupation related fiction as they plan their career.

    The Revolution In Education begins when a student is 11 years old (5th Grade). 

    This is the age at which they develop self-awareness. 

    Some develop it sooner.  Some develop it later.


    Self awareness is necessary because it enables students to say, "I like this, but I don't like that".

    With that ability, they can prioritize what they read on a 1 - 10 scale.


    The Revolution In Education has no

    Because all skills in the course of study are scope and sequenced and very important to the job, students can not move to the next skill unless they've mastered each skill in the sequence.


    The system works like this,

    1. For 30 minutes each day, students systematically browse through the Expanded Dewey Decimal Booklet and the Jobs Booklet to find topics and Jobs, looking for topics that interest them and making a note of those that interest them. Systematically, means that they browse through all the topics.

    2. When they find topics and Jobs that interest them, they begin systematically reading nonfiction books. Systematically, again, means that they read from all Categories in the library. Also, as they read, they must remember that Interest is an indicator of Aptitude. They are trying to discover What they are good at. Also, the students, obviously, will be reading more than one book at a time. However, one of  the books must fulfill the requirement to be Systematic (a book from each Category of the Dewey Decimal System) and the others can be those that Interest them.

    3. These books are indexed to the Dewey Decimal System and to Jobs that are also indexed to the Dewey Decimal System.

    4. Also, all Jobs are have Identity Traits. Therefore, students will take Identity Tests to know their Personality, Temperament, Aptitude, Interests, and Cognitive Abilities.

    5. Once students discover books that strongly interest them and they know their Identity Traits, they go to the Department of Labor website and look for Jobs that match their Dewey Decimal Number and their Identity Traits.

    6. Students also make Book Reports that record the books Dewey Decimal Number.  And, importantly, students keep a Category Tally Sheet that shows the number of times the student read a book in that Category. The Tally Sheet also keeps the students' 1 - 10 rating of that Category.

    7. Using this information - the Interest Tally Sheet and Identity Traits - Counselors, Teachers, and Administrators can help the student find Jobs that will make them Happy, Successful, and Prosperous in life.

    8. Most importantly, all decisions are made by the student. It's their life.

    9. When they decide upon a Job, the student enrolls in a Course Of Study that prepares them for that Job.

    10. The student receives a Progress Report Card that documents their progress in the Course Of Study.

    11. When they have mastered the course of study, they graduate and receive a Masters Degree.

    12. The school will now help them find that Job.

    13. The student may wish to enroll in several Courses Of Study. The school will decide if this is possible.



    Always follow your dreams because Interest = Aptitude
