I believe that “philosophy” is the foundation for every new school. I also believe that every school should follow at least one philosophy. But to follow such a philosophy, the school should take the environment into consideration. It should study the society’s traditions and beliefs. From my experience, as a new teacher in a new school. The school where I taught in, went through some difficulties because of that. As a new school, it strictly followed the Existelialism. At the beginning, students and teachers were happy how the school went. There was so much freedom of chioce. Teachers and students were relaxed, not a lot of studies and work. All was fine during the first semester. However, parents started to complain about the curriculum. They were confused because there were no science books, there was no homework to be sent home. Thus, the principle had to change the curriculum. She kept the teaching hours to be creative and fun, but she included science books and started sending math, reading, and spelling homework. However, not all teachers were creative,and thus the principle had to change the curriculum, and thus we ended teaching the traditional way. However, the second year the principle learning from the previous year, came up with a better curriculum. She prepared her teachers for seminars on her new curriculum. She ordered science books, and added spanish as a third language. Her school philosophy was a bit from all four major philosophies. The second year the school had a better year for teachers, students and parents.
In my opinion, the school should follow a philosophy that works for the benefits of the society.
