    I believe the grade level paradigm has run its course. Students should not be grouped by age and advance together through a homogenous curriculum, but should advance independently as they master each unit of a sequential pathway.

    Focus more on the mechanics of teaching rather than idiology. During a 40 minute class in middle-school: An average of 7 minutes should be reading, 10 minutes on ‘lecture and class-discussion’, 10 minutes on student-writing. The rest of the time will be spent on one-on-one conversations between teacher and student or student and student. Over a month, the teacher would have spent equal-time(hopefully positive) on each of the student under the teacher’s supervision.
