Implementation of a student-based curriculum

October 23, 2008

I am in favor the implementation of a student-based curriculum in all junior high shools in Brazil, because I think people should choose what they wanted to do and what they wanted to learn, choosing just the subjects they are interest in, learning only the subjects that will be important for their futures. I think learning things that you won’t use in your futures and you are not interesting in is useless, because you won’t pay atention, you won’t dedicate it for that subject. And I think you can’t force people to like and to study subjects they don’t want, so I’m in favor that the students should choose the subjcts they want to learn in high-schools.

Rick: But then, if this idea is implemented in Brazil, will these students be ready to take FUVEST? I believe that for Brazil to be able to make these changes, we would have to rethink the role of FUVEST in our educational system and start coming up with a different way to assess our students before they get into the university. What do you think?
