Education

  1. As a result of evaluating segregation and the problems of poor children: The classroom as a microcosm of society should fairly and equitably represent the inhabitants of the society, with no limiting conditions for ethnicity, gender, religious preference, or other personal uniqueness

 

  1. With consideration for society holding a more collectivist attitude and less individualistic or self-oriented people: The classroom as a microcosm of society should provide students with the skills and personal tools required to interact with other peoples in society in such a way that all participants of the interaction gain from the process

 

  1. As a society that rejects a factory form of classroom, and supports more individualized, and presumably more effective, study: The classroom as a microcosm of society must provide students with the ability to acquire information from multiple sources, study it with healthy skepticism, and provide intelligent and reasonable arguments to others based on well-supported evidence. In addition, the classroom should be able to respond to the class' needs as a whole and/or the student's needs as individuals when either or both are required

 

  1. In response to the need for a classroom that represents the best form of government and/or constitutional ideals: The classroom as a microcosm of society should provide students with the analytical tools gained from sociology and history that would support their ability to make good decisions as citizens of their community and/or government

 

  1. As a society focused on teaching those things to students necessary to support the survival and furtherance of self and society: The classroom as a microcosm of society should provide students with the knowledge and ability to solve problems, resolve conflicts, and synthesize solutions related to conditions or situations with which they have never previously interacted

 

  1. In response to a consistent condition of poor economic support, and lack of focus on the above, or any, stated goals: The classroom as a microcosm of society should be recognized and funded at levels equal to its contribution to the society and its government
