Self-Normalized Learner Participation
A school is an educational establishment designed specifically to offer learning spaces and learning opportunities for students under the guidance of qualified teachers. Most developed countries have systems of formal public education, which in some cases may be mandatory. In such systems, students progress from a series of elementary schools to higher levels of education such as secondary school. Some countries also have merit-based schools, which give recognition and emphasis to students of certain educational qualifications who excel in academic performance.
A school offers students the opportunity to go through formal learning and studies through certified educators who are responsible for ensuring that each and every child gets competent knowledge. The best schools serve as both a learning institution as well as a learning institution for the adult learners who complete their formal education. Some of the most renowned schools include the Indian School in Washington DC, International Institute of Management Research in Delft, Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Massachusetts and MIT in Cambridge.
At international schools, children are encouraged to participate actively in the overall educational process by taking part in the decision making processes as well as in the day-to-day activities. They are given a chance to become more skilled professionals through formal and informal programs, including summer internships. Students also get a chance to apply for higher level teaching positions after graduating from the schools. All in all, an international school education system provides meaningful student involvement. Such learning institutions go a long way in preparing students for future careers.
