In the small Christian schools, teachers have several grades in one room. The older kids help the younger ones which keeps the older ones sharp. And most Christian schools place high academically.
Anyway I think bringing back neighborhood schools is key. And they need to quit with the big rural consolidated school districts. My township voted down the $89 million budget. TWICE. We said enough is enough!

Exactly. Those huge schools are horrible, and kids ride the bus for hours. Small, local control.
One room schools or schools that combine grades are good. It is unnatural for kids to only associate with those of their exact age anyway. The older ones can help teach the younger ones and that has many benefits.
