energizestudents:

It seems every few years, educators are urged to adopt the latest and greatest teaching method, writes high-school English teacher Nicholas Provenzano. In this blog post, he writes that while teachers should be open to better methods of instruction, he cautions them against succumbing to pressure to disregard other approaches. Instead, he writes about the advice a veteran teacher once gave him: “Teach to the students in your class and you will always be right.”

The 7-11s replacing supermarkets is a perfect metaphor for what will happen to public schools if legislatures, boards, and voters endorse the notion that unregulated private enterprise can solve the problems of schooling. The for-profit 7-11 charters will offer bare bones curricula while the full-service suburban schools will provide a wide range of offerings…. Blaming teachers for low performing students is like blaming the 7-11 clerk for bad nutrition in the community.
