The focus of STARS Services, Goals, Understanding, & Philosophy have developed from these fundamental concepts. Any Experience can be used as a tool for proper Education. The public schools were developed as a method to combine knowledge and experiences of others into a context easily transferred to our youth. STARS Evolution has committed this to practice as our current focus on bringing computers to our children illustrates.
The 1960's generated many similar self-focused principals and beliefs that will last long into the next century. Though not apparently beneficial, the public school systems were effected greatly. TODAY, all of the public Universities in this country provide some kind of Liberal Studies Degree, Directed Studies class, Independent Study course, and Directed Research classes.
Fundamentally, these courses require a student to submit "a written Proposal " explaining an academic mission, circumstance and goals for which this Degree major, or the individual courses are appropriate. The Degree will require 3 professors who together agree to the course requirements for the Degree. The classes can be directed and authorized by a single professor, but the student must commit to completing whatever is agreed to in contract for the grades.
Essentially, ALL courses in any institution can be completed by direct contract to the professor teaching the course. This is a simple and fundamental component of the entire education system. The Professor is GOD of his Profession. He can do whatever he/she believes is appropriate to teach a subject.
HOWEVER, whenever a student PAYS tuition the implied contract entered into demands that ALL work and materials the student generates in learning the subject, IS OWNED BY THE STUDENT ........ Provided no other contract, payment or agreement is made.
That is to say, as a student in your class, I own my tests, notes, and reports. If you hire me, and require a non-disclosure agreement so I can participate in your research, then I only own the grade at the end... nothing else. However, if our independent study contract required that I learned to build widgets, and complete a final exam with no other requirements; then my widget building could be FOR PROFIT selling my widgets abroad independently.
What makes this all work????
