Top reasons why children struggle in a traditional classroom

There can be several reasons why students struggle in the traditional classroom setting. Here are just a few.

  • Pupils sit at individual desks, often in rows and listen to a teacher lecture. There is very little interaction this way.
  • When students are asked questions by the teacher, the same kids tend to raise their hands, leaving others excluded.
  • It is very rare that students ask questions on their own.
  • When non-lecture work time is allotted, interaction between students is often not related to the current work.
  • Some students will finish lessons early and engage in non-school activities while others will struggle to even finish the assignment given.

If your child doesn’t seem to be performing to the best of his ability, it may be time to look at different educational options. Give your child the tools he needs to make his future a successful one!
