Solon Elementary School has lost 20 to 30 percent of its students over the past
Solon Elementary School has lost 20 to 30 percent of its students over the past three years, mostly because parents are upset with education reform efforts at the school. Teachers say the new approaches teach children to work cooperatively, help them understand how subjects are linked and accommodate the learning styles of individuals, while some parents say the teachers want a fun school full of opinionated, self-confident children with a bent for teamwork, rejecting academic rigor and individual achievement along the way.
