In the novel Schooled, by Gordon Korman, Capricorn Anderson changes from a 13 year old home-schooled hippie who lived in a community called Garland Farms to the most popular boy in the entire school in an unexpected way. The reason why this is a big deal is because Garland farms is a community where only hippies (Cap and his grandmother rain) live.

In today’s world education is everything. Condoleezza Rice has said that “education is transformational. It changes lives. That is why people work so hard to become educated and why education has always been the key to the American Dream, the force that erases arbitrary divisions of race and class and culture and unlocks every person's God-given potential” (goodreads.com).

Teachers that have the ability to adapt to the students learning skills can completely change their grades.

Though there have been many philosophies of education over the years, there are two that encompass my belief system most, traditional and progressive. Most educators do not believe both philosophies can exist at the same time; however, during my study it became apparent that the two philosophies do not have to be mutually exclusive.

Learning is a lifelong process, regardless how it is accomplished; reading, internet surfing, social gatherings where one acquires new skills or knowledge. As a society we are conditioned to put limitations upon ourselves and education is one of those limitations. One’s beliefs, regarding education, are many, especially when it involves adults returning back to school. Certain barriers such as; integrating school life into one’s everyday life, fear of technology and fear of classroom integration just to name a few.

Change is occurring in society at a rapid speed. Change may be described as the adoption of an innovation (Carlopio 1998), where the ultimate goal is to improve outcomes through an alteration of practices. The above saying can truly be applied on the modern education system. The society in the twenty first century is increasingly diverse, globalized, and complex and media-saturated. In today’s world of technology, the olden education system with its teacher-centered approach, passive learning, time based, textbook driven, fragmented curriculum, low expectations from the learner does not seem to cater to the learning needs of twenty first century students.
Schools are the second place after home where students’ behavior and future educational success are shaped. At schools there are many elements or factors that can influence the teaching and learning process that may take place. Rasyid (2012) stated that there are four perennial truths that make the teaching and learning process possible to take place in the classroom. If one of these is not available, there will be no teaching and learning process, though the learning process itself may still take place, they are: (1) Teacher, (2) Students, (3) Material and (4) Context of time and place. All of them are related to one another.
