A school is an institution where students are imparted certain set of skills and talents so that they can not only sustain themselves but also flourish in whichever career path they choose for themselves. The main objective of a school is to provide students with the opportunities and guidance so that they can make right decisions for themselves. It also responsible for the growth of their students and ensuring to provide appropriate challenges to improve their development. Thus I don’t agree with the authors’ point of view of providing a fixed curriculum for school education.
Every individual is different and possess their own unique set of talents and skills. A school is supposed to identify and to strengthen those talents. A fixed curriculum restricts the student learning to a specific defined concepts. This not only restricts the learning the process but also limits the creativity of the students with no challenge for them to think out of the box or to push.

Furthermore everyone has a different learning and grasping speed. Forcing everyone to follow the same curriculum may lead to difficulty for some students to keep up with the course while some maybe be sailing through their schoolwork without facing any substantial challenge. Since everyone would studying the same subject course, it may also lead to high competition among students to perform well. Such high competitions may also disrupt the work-rest balance between curricular and extra-curricular activities for some of the students. Thus leading to studies and schoolwork becoming a priority in a students’ life and hobbies and extra-curricular activities taking a back seat. As studies have shown that for effective growth and learning, extra-curricular and resting time is as important as studying, it would lead to high stress levels among the students who are not able to balance their work-rest time. Moreover, since everyone can’t cope with stress effectively and have varied stress management levels, it can also lead to some unfavorable situations.

In addition, an adaptive curriculum ensures, that school students can choose and study various subjects before they have to make the decision of what subjects they want to study in in college. Options of subjects at school levels can help students to choose their career paths on the subjects they like. Instead if they are forced to study the same curriculum, then how are the students supposed to choose the future of their careers? It would end up being a hitting the bull in the dark, with no exposure to the field.

All things considered, I consider a diverse and self-paced curriculum not only aids in effective learning but also helps students in choosing their futures. Moreover, it also helps in encouraging the creativity of the students while providing them with appropriate balance between study and their hobbies.
