Post Policy Makers

Are there any other teachers out there frustrated by the fact that we have little to no input in curriculum decisions. The policies we follow are made by administrators, and sometimes those administrators were teachers that were not great educators to begin with. I know that research based decisions guide our policies, but we are always playing catch up. Anyone who has been in the field for any number of years realizes that ideas come and go, and then come back around again. I think there needs to be way more autonomy for teachers. Common Core should be a guide and not a bible. We need to teach to kids strengths and adjust and differentiate to address their weaknesses.

In speaking with people in the private sector, it is pretty clear management has the upper hand. People are desperate to keep their jobs. This intense pressure has always been present in the private sector but now I see it more and more in the public sector. Teachers are desperate to keep their jobs and administration has become much less collegial in nature. This is hurting the school climate and culture. In the end, the kids lose as well.

    Welcome, my friends. Reading is the key to academic success. Academic success brings increased opportunities in life for our children. Join parents from all over the world as we focus on literacy in a very specific, effective manner.

    We are truly appreciative of our newest registered users. Every once in awhile we notice a nice bump in activity and we know someone is out there helping. Please keep spreading the word so that we may help many parents and children. Children stop reading at home too early in life. We’ve identified the problem and offered a free solution. We embrace the opportunity to work with people of all colors and cultures.
