ASSUMPTION: Students will learn more and remember more of what they learned if they learn in real-world contexts, which also reduces boredom and disciplinary problems, stimulates more parental involvement, inspires self-confidence and responsibility in youth, and motivates them to learn.
Education in real-world contexts is not a new idea. Aristotle wrote, "For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them." Centuries later John Adams echoed the thought when he said, "There are two types of education: One should teach us how to make a living and the other should teach us how to live." Our current education system is doing neither very well.
