Some subjects are difficult to learn, such as mathematics.
I propose a slow school which is a curriculum which is drawn
to take longer. Every thing is split into a more manageable
learning rate, so you can take time to learn and truly
understand the material.
The exams should cover
old material again to make sure you
remember and have learned what you were meant to.

The fastest slow school around ... [kdf, Jul 02 2020]

||WKTE for many subject areas. The first example
that comes to mind is one many people wont be
familiar with - the Defense Language Institute used
by US military. Quite the reverse of a slow
school though, DLI teaches on a fast
track. But The duration of courses range
between 36 and 64 weeks, depending on the
difficulty of the language. (link)
||DLI joke - If someone who speaks two languages is
called bilingual what do you call someone who
only speaks one language?
||[kdf]; it seems to be a peculiarity of english-speaking
countries to not (as a matter of course) teach other
languages from an early age. Where-as in Europe, Africa,
the Middle East (not to familiar with Asia...), multi-lingual is
||Yes, teaching at an early age is important. Didn't realize
teaching English only was as common in *other* English
speaking countries as it is in USA.
||Does the joke work as well if you change the punchline to "A
Brit" or "An Aussie" ?

||Is this what is known as remediation classes? It seems that most schools already employ this concept, which proves how valuable this bun is!
||Doesn't a baby randomly piece information together on the fly? No incremental steps, just easy and hard information bunched together to be worked out by the subconscious as clues come along.
