The Ideal School

理想学校狂想曲

(By Crookshanks)

(克鲁克山)

My ideal school is a school quite unlike any school we've heard of. This school consists of a large library and basic recreational facilities . And that's all. There are no classrooms. The school motto is "I sought not to bring men to me, but to themselves," a quote by Emerson . The school is built on the idea of active learning. No student is forced to learn. This is a much more effective way of learning. Students at this school can really pursue their interests. Most importantly, students at this school are not "institutionalized" . They do not obey and follow the school bells. They do not act according to a set schedule.

我理想中的学校完全不同于我们曾经听说过的任何一所学校。在这所学校里,有一个很大的图书馆,还有一些基本的娱乐设施。这就是学校的全部。没有教室。校训来自爱默生的一句名言:吾等上下求索,不求授人以鱼,但求授人以渔。建校的基本理念是主动学习,不会强迫学生学习。这是一种更为有效的学习方式。在这所学校里,学生可以真正追求自己的兴趣爱好。更重要的是,这所学校的学生不会被制度化。他们不用听铃声上下课,也不用按照固定的计划表行动。

Like I mentioned before there are no classrooms in this school, therefore there are no classes, no homework, and no tests. There are many teachers; however these teachers act more like mentors . They are there to answer questions, to guide and to help the students with their curiosities or problems.

正如我前面提到的,这所学校里一间教室也没有,因此,在这里不用上课,不用写作业,更不用考试。这里有很多老师,但他们更像是顾问。他们在学生提出问题时负责回答,在学生遇到感兴趣的课题或疑难问题时负责指导并提供帮助。

An important part of this school system is that the students at this school must start attending this school from an early age. Older transfer students are not allowed. The reason for this is that this way of active learning can be easily taken advantage of by students who come from an institutionalized environment. Because they are used to being forced to do homework and take tests that when they come to this school they would most likely just be lazy and do nothing which defeats the purpose of the school. But for kids who enroll at a young age such as 4 or 5, this way of schooling will help them develop an interest to learn actively.

这所学校的体制里一个重要的要求是:学校里所有的学生都必须从小就开始在这里学习。这所学校不接收年龄大一些的转校生。原因在于,这种强调主动学习的教学方法很容易让那些从制度化教学环境中转校而来的学生有机可乘。因为转校生习惯了在老师的强迫下完成作业、参加各种考试,因此当他们来到这所学校后,极有可能变得懒散懈怠、无所事事,而这一点恰恰与学校的教学目的格格不入。但对于从小(比如4、5岁时)就进入这所学校学习的孩子们来说,这种教育方法可以帮助他们培养主动学习的兴趣。

A normal school day consists of the student arriving at school in the morning. Note that this school is not a boarding school. I believe that the best education consists of an equal balance between time spent at home and time spent at school. After the student arrives at school, he/she can do whatever they want. Or more so they can learn about whatever they want. The school encourages individualism. We encourage each student to deeply learn about the topics they are interested in. On ways of learning, students are encouraged to get hands-on experience, like traveling, and taking trips.

正常的教学日还包括学生早上来到学校。请注意,这所学校不是寄宿学校。因为我相信最好的教育制度会实现时间分配上的平衡:学生一半的时间在家里,另一半时间在学校。学生到校后,他/她可以想做什么就做什么。不仅如此,他们还可以想学什么就学什么。学校鼓励学生进行个性化学习。我们鼓励每一个学生深入学习那些他们感兴趣的课题。在学习方法上,我们鼓励学生多亲身体验,如鼓励他们多旅游,多参加短途旅行。

The students do not have to follow text books. Instead they are encouraged to read and write each other's pieces. They can always ask the teachers or should I say mentors questions about anything. According to their interests, students can learn things from how to ride a bike, to Greek mythology , to the modern languages.

学生不必照着课本学习,反之,我们鼓励他们互相交换阅读各自的心得文章并进行批注。在老师(或者我是不是应该说顾问)那儿,他们可以随时提问,而且不限内容。学生可以根据自己的兴趣选择学习内容,他们可以学骑自行车,学习希腊神话,也可以学习现代语言。

Each day is spent following their curiosities, solving mysteries, exchanging ideas with a mentor, or just simply sitting in silence meditating . There is no pressure to be someone, or to achieve something.It's about naturally learning and enhancing one's abilities. These students do not need to face standardized testing which is all about meeting specifically set standards. They are not categorized and most importantly they are not institutionalized.

在这所学校里的每一天,学生都可以研究那些令自己好奇的事物,解决心中的难题,和顾问交流想法,也可以静静地坐在那儿沉思。在这里,没有人给你压力,要你出人头地或事业有成。在这里,一切都围绕着如何让学生以自然的方式学习并自然而然地提升能力而展开。这些学生不需要面对标准化考试,因为这些考试完全是为了考查学生是否达到了某些特定的预设标准而设计的。这些学生接受的也不是类型化的教育(而是个性化的教育),而且最重要的是,他们不会受限于制度化的教育环境。
