Abstract The main goal of education is to prepare individuals to be contributing citizens of our society and to help them reach their true potential. Education provides the foundation that enables students to be successful lifelong learners that thrive in society. While schools are the catalyst for the dissemination of education, it is a successful partnership between schools, government family and community that ensures the ultimate success of education. A clear focus on educating all students despite their diverse needs and differentiated instruction are essential. Teachers serve as facilitators who guide students in the learning process.
Teachers and school principals have begun using information systems to help create effective learning environments. The evolution of information and knowledge plays an important role in the formation of educational organizations and helps in the development of strategies and plans for the future. (Petrides & Guiney, 2012) In modern schools which focus on the learner, all members of the school, including administrators, teachers, staff, students and parents, consider that it is necessary to provide learning opportunities for each one of them to enhance their learning and knowledge. It is expected for these schools that the learners become able to learn for life, think critically, produce knowledge. For this end, schools should become knowledge producers.
Education Reform Education reform means to make education better by removing faults and defects. True educators are always thinking of more effective ways to enhance and democratize the way children learn. With the continuous change of growing population, economics, culture, family, and global communication, there has to be continuous educational reforms to keep the society abreast with these changes. One of education’s early reformers is John Dewey. Dewey operated and experimental school where he wanted “to discover in administration, selection of subject matter, methods of learning teaching, and discipline, how a school could become a cooperative community while developing in individuals their own capacities and identifying their own needs.” (Dewey’s Laboratory School page XII) another education, Harold Howe II in his book “Thinking about Our Kids,” reiterates that families and communities are as important as schools in the education of our children.
It is both relevant and essential in preparing children for the diversity of the world, and in promoting equality. In schools, it is a process that must be implemented on a daily basis and constantly adapted to reflect the students.

How we, as teachers, get our messages across will definitely influence the student’s ability to apply that knowledge. From my experiences and what I have encountered I intend to incorporate the Pragmatic and Idealistic philosophies into my classroom, based on my predictions on how to be a successful teacher. The Pragmatic approach to education involves placing the students as a number one priority. This type of classroom environment would give the child an opportunity to make decisions, which is a crucial part of living a successful life in today’s societies. I would provide a classroom with a helpful and productive atmosphere.
The classroom should entail structure, a sense of community, establish routines and procedures, and adequate resources. Some influential resources are classroom libraries, peer tutors, and basic technology. In addition, teachers need to recognize, research, and appropriately address any non-desired behavior. Teachers do have the power to make a difference in a student behavior. Lastly fluency, accuracy, and even error corrections should correlate to the objective of the lessons.
The Department for Education and Science (1988:7) states ‘Promoting Children’s learning is a principal aim of schools. Assessment lies at the heart of this process. It can provide a framework in which educational objectives may be set and pupils’ progress charted and expressed. It can yield a basis for planning the next steps in response to children’s needs… It should be an integral part of the educational process, continually providing both feedback and feed forward’. To be able to have an understanding of how to assess children within the classroom firstly we must have a significant understanding of differen... ... middle of paper ... ...g: a synthesis of meta-analyses.
The evaluation process should be progressive to incorporate overall planning, implement changes, which contribute to success. In order to focus on school climate and norms, the evaluation design must include the students, instructions, and outcomes to improve communication and building-level concerns to be address in this response. School Climate and Social Norms The school principal, other staff leaders, and personnel set the tone and the climate of the organization. Dr. Hunter indicated the learning environment should be positive, inviting, friendly, clean, and safe. Visitors should feel welcomed as they enter the school building.
