SYSTEMS How are these subsystems related? - Each subsystem functions to support education in some way How does one subsystem affect the others? Example: Without preschools and elementary schools to start the learning process, the schools with other students would be as effective
SYSTEMS How is our educational system a subsystem of an even larger system? Example: When students leave the educational system, they enter and contribute to other parts of society. For example, they enter the workforce, and the knowledge and skills they gained in the educational system are used there. Example: Also, the educational system is part of a broad government-supported social system – educational system, health care system, welfare system, etc.
