Why We Need To Reform Education Now

See on Scoop.itK-12 School Libraries

In the ten years since the launch of No Child Left Behind, these efforts have intensified. The results have been unimpressive. Graduation rates continue to falter and students and teachers alike are becoming more disaffected.

Susan Grigsby‘s insight:

I have long followed Sir Ken Robinson and his views/writings on creativity and public school. I love this part: To improve our schools, we have to humanize them and make education personal to every student and teacher in the system. Education is always about relationships. Great teachers are not just instructors and test administrators: They are mentors, coaches, motivators, and lifelong sources of inspiration to their students.

Right? Right?? Why do we let corporate bottom lines drive curriculum? Why do we let well-meaning but misinformed legislators get away with the draconian measures put upon schools to hammer out citizens in a factory-model setting that long ago became obsolete?
