1. lower the Teacher to kid ratio to less than 20:1 so each child that needs the extra one on one attention from the teacher receives it. 2. Make sure that teacher providing the attention is well paid and well educated themselves to deal with different learning models 3. restart and make mandatory the non traditional activities that stimulate the mind & body outside of education like art, music & drama 4. a computer built into every school desk and a computer issued for home use to every single child, stripped bare of extras and used for educational purposes only.
