Classroom Flyer Blog Begins

Have you seen our Education in the News entries this week? They're included below, and we'd love to hear your reactions... For instance, do you believe that the reason behind failing schools in America, as Doug Lemerov suggests in the NY Times article below, is that teachers don't know how to teach? (!) Let us know your thoughts.

Best regards;

BUILDING A BETTER TEACHER:

No matter how much the curriculum is tweaked, the standards are pushed, schools are closed down, or different focuses make the rounds, nothing will change, suggests educational consultant Doug Lemov, unless teachers know how to teach.

DISTRICTS REWARDED FOR FIRING LOW PERFORMANCE TEACHERS:

Close the failing schools and fire underperforming schools... that's the latest refrain from the administration, holding educators responsible for "fixing" America's trouble public school system.
