You have to ask yourself: with so many good reform ideas are out there, why is it that nothing ever changes?
Whose interests are really being served? Teachers unions? textbook publishers? surely not the children’s.
I mean “really”?! Is is truly this difficult to get a few good ideas into schools? Why is that? Some really good idea comes along, six committees have to review it, make their own contributions (“hey! you know what? come up with your own ideas!”) and finally you end up with some lame version of the original idea that no longer resembles the original decent one very much and it proves to have little effect. Back to the status quo.
So, I ask: whose interests are being served? There are plenty of good teachers who know that the twisted system is busted, who have good ideas that work. We need them – YOU – to start making some noise. Yeah, you could end up “in trouble” – so? Are you interested in what’s bets for the children/students or not? There’s no room for those who only want to ride a calm boat here. There’s too much on the line. Let’s hear from the rebels, the makers, the doers, the shakers. C’mon. Time’s a wasting. Souls are drifting.
