Doing away with the traditional grade structure in schools and allowing students learn at their own paces is one change possibly coming to schools of the future, according to Horry County Schools superintendent Cindy Elsberry.
She also thinks the 12th grade might be eliminated in the near future. A transitional year where students work closely with colleges and universities would take its place.
“Education is going to change a lot in the next 10 years and might be unrecognizable to generations past,” Elsberry said. “That has a lot of parents on edge, but something has to change for our students to be ready for the jobs of the future.”
