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.

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!

New book: "Credentialed to Destroy, how and why education became a weapon"

For those who think our school system has gotten off track by embracing a multitude of failed methods, I have some good news.

There is a very aggressive new book that names names, deconstructs theories, and explains that the worst sort of people are taking over our schools and our economy. The author's message is that we have to understand what's going on and stop it, otherwise all the lights are going to be turned off. Specifically, everyone needs to…
