Eternally Optimistic by Christopher Wooleyhand, Ph.D.

June marks the end of my 27th year as an educator, twelve years as a teacher and fifteen as an administrator. Even with all of those years behind me, I remain highly optimistic about the importance and impact of public education. This optimism comes from the gift of seeing children grow every day and every school year.



It is humbling and inspiring to watch a kindergarten child go from learning to recognize the letters of the alphabet to reading grade level passages in a 10 month time… Continue

Bloom’s Taxonomy…. why it’s a nuisance

All around the world, teachers, schools of education, and entire school systems are spending their hours and days discussing whether a particular bit of school activity is sufficiently devoted to ANALYSING as opposed to EVALUATING.

 For most people, most of the time, these are indistinguishable. What kind of discussion can anybody possibly have?  A pointless one.

 And at the end of this discussion, not one kid in one classroom will have…

Yet Snyder finds major problems with this premise. First, we don't know how to teach character. We have an increasingly cogent "science of character," but no "science of teaching…

Falling short on our egalitarian system

Falling short on our egalitarian system

In the national mythology, few ideas are more revered than education's power to overcome entrenched inequality, writes Eduardo Porter in The New York Times. While often falling short of the ideal, the United States at one time aimed to provide universal, comprehensive education, an egalitarian system to put elite European systems to shame -- but no longer. Not only do American standards trail those of other industrial…

Racism's compound interest

Racism's compound interest

The legacy of slavery and segregation in this country has benefitted many for years on a principle similar to compound interest, writes Ezra Klein for Vox. White America has, for centuries, used force, racist laws, biased courts, and housing segregation to build wealth, stealing the work of African Americans and then, when that became illegal, plundering their work and assets. And then it let compound interest work its magic. Today,…
