I have an immense love for education, but I firmly believe that the traditional, one-size-fits-all approach needs to change. This approach can cause disengagement, which I have experienced, and sluggish academic development since the traditional way of receiving an education disregards the unique talents, interests, and learning styles of each student.

The root of the issue is there is a lack of personalization in education. Students come from diverse backgrounds and have different abilities and yet so many students do not have their education tailored to meet their needs. This undermines a student’s enthusiasm for learning and their motivation. It also gives students a lack of motivation and may prevent them from reaching their full potential.

Customized education offers a solution. By identifying and catering to the different needs of students, personalized learning can make learning more engaging and our time at school more effective. It requires creating tailored learning plans that consider the skills and learning styles of an individual student. Group projects, adaptive learning platforms, and technology should all be leveraged in a student’s customized education plan.
