My idea is about promoting students by the learning acquired . With this I mean that, students would not be grouped by their age but by their skills achieved, and as they build more knowledge and skills will be promoted to a higher complex stage. This way, learning pace of each would be respected.

This type of school system is based on the principles of respect for the individuals within the inclusion and avoiding common stigmatization in the traditional school on students who fail to promote standardized times. Of course, the teacher will act as a facilitator and counselor.
