For their child's education, parents want schools to teach their child the necessary skills and knowledge to function in society. What better way is there, than to provide this knowledge in a form where the child can experience the learning and use this experience for the future.
Through qualitative research, using observations and informal interviews, I found, in a rural elementary school that experiential education is used mainly for teaching classroom procedures instead of the required curriculum.
