The Misdirection of Modern American Education

    The rash of stories, editorials and letters that have been published in recent weeks and months concerning the “Common Core” curricula and the teacher evaluations, very often written by non-educators, deserve thoughtful and knowledgeable responses.  As someone who trains teachers and deeply believes that they should be held to the highest pedagogical and ethical standards, I would like to try to explain why there is such a mounting revolt by teachers and principals, parents and students…

Teachers, Facilitators, Babysitters-- why do these job descriptions seem to be merging?

There was once upon a time a person called a school teacher, who was very well educated, who was steely, who took control of the class, a veritable sage on a stage.

 Well, you can kiss all that good-by.

 As part of its general disdain for education and indeed civilization, our Education Establishment has waged a war against the very concept of a teacher.

1) As chronicled in "Ed School Follies" 20 years ago (see my review on Amazon), ed schools got…

New Project Part III

Research is part of the entire system. How do we incorporate various research into to the current structure? How will it successfully impact the current program and the future plans? What are the potential barriers?

All eyes on North Carolina

All eyes on North Carolina

Teacher salaries are losing ground fast in North Carolina, reports Dave DeWitt for NPR. In an effort to give more control to local districts, the state legislature passed sweeping changes to public education, many of which affected teachers directly. No state has seen a more dramatic decrease in teacher-salary rankings in the past 10 years, and other changes in public education are unprecedented, making North Carolina closely…

College-prep revolt

College-prep revolt

A standards rebellion is sweeping the country, promoted by Republicans and Democrats alike, writes Stephanie Simon for Politico.com. The backlash stems in part from the Common Core, but is also pushback against the idea that all students must be ready for college, regardless of intentions.

New Project Part II

The goal of critical thinking skills related to graduate requirements began with a conversation. I will first explain the plan, then how we arrived at this end point.

Everyone should know who Mona McNee is...

Mona McNee, who lives in the UK, is a life-long phonics advocate. She is almost 90. She is still fighting!

 She is also the creator of the "Step-by-Step" reading program, which you can get on the Internet for free.

Her story, and her beliefs, are an excellent way for people to…
