Calling for Clear, Specific Content

Filed under: FYI — jexter1 @ 10:31 pm

Check out this article in the AMERICAN EDUCATOR, a catalogue that my parents are subscribed to. My mom sent me this article and I have found it online for all of you to read. It highlights the fallacies in NCLB, the lack of support and information given to new teachers regarding expectations and curriculum, and the need to look beyond the “pedagogical fads.” If we as educators, including veteran educators, are aware of the problems, then why are they so difficult to rectify?

Enjoy! -Jessica
