Give Me Your knowledge or Opinion

on March 22, 2020

As a successful teacher of reading in the past, I am willing to accept the possibility that one way of teaching works better than the other for certain children or because the world has changed over time. I just don’t want us to live with an angry dispute anymore. Would it be possible–and reasonable– for every public school to offer a choice to parents and their students? Would doing that result in peace or war within a building? Please give me your opinions or knowledge. I am willing to consider your knowledge and experience

    It might be a good idea. What we would want to avoid, though, would be “action research” that would use students’ performance on standardized tests as “proof” that one method worked better than another.

    I believe in balance in education. There are children who learn in many different ways and one way or another way of teaching things isn’t the direction I think we need to go. I wrote about this recently on my facebook page titled Steve Buel for Better Schools. Hope you are doing well, Joanne.
