    A Learners' View (ALV) Is Of Choices On The Shortest and Fastest Path to Learning, The Oxygen Of Social Life.

    FROM A LEARNERS' VIEW (ALV) OF CHOICES, schools by whoever name, at their common core, exist as an organized social effort to influence choices of learners:
    1. To continue that society into future generations;
    2. To assist learners prepare to demonstrate that they can do what the most informed people of that society do; and
    3. To accelerate, increase, and deepen (AID) learning with instruction by learned people; and
    4. To reduce the risk of people failing to demonstrate that they learned as instructed.

    Without meeting these purposes, societies change, sometimes dramatically, sometimes incrementally. Each society chooses in its own way its own type(s) of schooling for its members and its own way of selecting and supporting teachers.

    Especially since World War II, many societies have adopted and adapted similar appearing schooling systems and to a lesser extent similar curricula that guide choices of learners. The more recent development and worldwide distribution of personal cell phones, smart phones, Tablets, and other advancing electronic communication devices appear, at least temporarily, to increase similarities in exposure across societies of users to choices of what to learn and from whom available.

    Scientists have reported that children of Traditional American Biblical Families with a Symbolic Family Estate (SFE) will more likely learn from lessons in schools than children of other families. Research does not describe the extent this effect has on learning beyond the United States or with electronic communication tools.
