ABSTRACT
The article discusses the old school practices that were now moved out of the school systems. Before, school children were being given hundreds of nonsense facts which after an examination will be forgotten and so with the practice of a teacher asking student a question and will be marked according to the quality of the student's answer. These practices have left the schools since at present, the new concept is that, what was being discussed in the classroom can be applied in his quest to face life today and in the future. The most effective areas of experience that a child get involved at school is the discussion of current events in their city, nation and world where he can contemplate on the possible issues.
