Amish Education

Because Amish children avoid public systems and schools, they must attend private schools within their community to further their education. This is a necessary step in the development of every young boy and girl. As you can expect, though, there are some distinguishable differences between traditional schooling and that within an Amish community.

 

Length of Amish Schooling

 

Typically, Amish children only go to school up until the 8th grade. There are always exceptions within each specific community, but most elders believe that children have learned everything they need to by this time. After they’ve finished the 8th grade, they may pursue a career path of their own choosing.

 

Looking at this from the outside, one may think 8th grade education isn’t enough for children to learn all the necessary principles they need in life. You have to remember, though, Amish lifestyles are more simple and basic than those of the outside society. They don’t rely on modern technology or travel much, so there’s really not a whole lot of “extra” education necessary past the 8th grade.

 

Focus of Amish Education

 

While Amish children are attending school, they’ll learn a variety of skills and information, from history to math lessons. As they progress into some of the later grades, more focus will be placed on learning trades such as cooking, farming, woodworking, etc. Teachers find it important to teach trade skills to the children at an early age so they may contribute to the overall well-being of the community.

 

Technology, science and the theory of evolution are topics which are omitted from the Amish school system. They believe teaching their children such things will do more harm than good, so they focus on more basic, hands-on topics that will actually be used in the community.

 

Unlike most large schools located within the city, Amish schools usually only consist of a single room where students go to learn. Depending on the size of the community, there could be as few as a 2 or 3 children in a single grade or as many as a dozen.

 

One of the most notable differences between Amish and traditional schools is how they view teachers. In traditional schools, most parents criticize the methods used by teachers, claiming they’re either trying to teach something that isn’t necessary or simply aren’t doing their job right. Amish communities view their teachers are role models who should be respected and listened to at all times.
