If some students are smarter than others then why are all students treated the same?

I understand why public schools treat all kids alike. I mean you don't want to give favors to one student and deny favors to another one. That is also wrong but when a student works hard and has actually achieved more than his or her class mates. Doesn't that student deserve to learn something else rather than the same old repetitive stuff that he himself or herself learned on their own? Lets face it, some students really don't want to be there and they prevent other students from learning. That is why I believe that the private sector can do a far better job than the public school system. In the private sector the parents are paying for that child's education so they expect them to learn something. If that child isn't learning much then the parent can try another school. No two kids are exactly alike so teaching our kids exactly the same thing isn't going to work in every single situation. Some kids do well in a public school system and others do better when they are home schooled. Wouldn't it be great if we had businesses out there trying to find ways to educate our children and make a profit for themselves at the same time? Think about it. The pharmaceutical, internet and technical fields are an example of what the free market can accomplish. The students are actually breaking public school regulations by playing with their little electronic gadgets rather than studying in class. That is because the free market has produced products that are far superior to anything that the public school system could ever come up with on their own. Imagine if we allowed the free market to teach our kids. Wouldn't the free market find a way to keep the students interested? I mean if they don't or can't do it then they won't remain in business for long.

There's always extra-curricular stuff students can do. And teachers can't just 'teach extra stuff' because it probably isn't in the syllabus and may not be tested on. Then some students might assume it IS being tested on, and focus on learning something they don't need to. Has happened to me at school before... More
