Exploring the exploration of open-ended transactional inquiry “

“While changes are needed at all levels of the educational system, elementary science education creates a pattern of expectations that affects all subsequent levels and so needs special attention.”

I have to agree with this 100%. It is for this reason that I have gained interest in the educational system, especially in elementary school. This early stage in student’s educational life is crucial in determining whether or not they will continue along the path of getting an institutionalized education. The student’s interest and concern for their education is contingent on the effectiveness of the staff and curriculum and so it is extremely important have that part of their educational experience as compelling and intriguing as possible.
