Classroom biology dnaPreparing students for the future workforce is the major incentive in generating the changes in education. To be prepared, students must be able to interact with others as well as perform the skills of the job. Education is currently adapting new technology, and utilizing logically thinking in a business environment. Teachers provide the tools for their students to develop these skills.

Secondary school teachers help students probe more deeply into subjects first introduced in high schools and expose them to more information about how they work in the world. Subject specialization includes subjects such as English, Spanish and mathematics.

Teachers may use films, slides, overhead projectors, and the latest technology in teaching. It is the responsibility of the teacher to design classroom organization that will meet student needs and abilities.
