There have been seven types of primary learning styles identified, but public schools only have enough resources to cater to one – verbal, while the concept is controversial I do believe it is a good start in trying to figure out why the public school system has failed at engaging every student.
If a student can develop a love for education and understand their own abilities while in school, they are more likely to believe in themselves. Self efficacy is strengthened and their confidence in their ability to be a scholar is not diminished. They will more likely believe in their ability to attend college and find a challenging and satisfactory career.
So to make things better for every student we have to apply the resources, making sure teachers have what they need to engage all their students.
