- a teacher
I was a student teacher at the Virginia Tech lab school for one year. The approach to learning (or lack thereof) is of little benefit to children. Armed with anecdotal and unclear rhetoric "defining" the approach, the staff confuse/manipulate people into believing this school is top notch. In reality no one can articulately provide examples of true learning...only glorified play packaged as something more scientific. Any caring preschool will provide a better program for less money. I can testify first hand to how the children grew more egocentric as the year progressed. Telling students no was prohibited and teachers could offer very little of their own suggestions to the learning. I agree in using student interest to INFORM planning, but the reality of basing EVERYTHING on the desires of a child is that it creates spoiled children who have learned very little about compromise, respecting authority figures, or the value of learning from others. In this school the world revolves around the child and the teachers (college students forced to work there) tiptoe around the tyrants they have helped create. I am now a parent and would NEVER fork over the hefty tuition for such a place.
