Dr. Michael L. Cubbin commented on Michael Keany's blog post Why Do Teachers Quit? And why do they stay? by LIZ RIGGS
"A few brief comments: 1. Teachers are not fully prepared to walk into a class - first day - and make it work. Ed college programs need to up their games. 2. Teachers, like students, like most people nowadays, somehow expect things to be easier than…"

"Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him to fish and he will never be hungry. What is missing above? Goal setting, Time Management and Prioritization. I read the above list in disbelief thinking when will we pass the reins of student…"

Dr. Michael L. Cubbin replied to Michael Keany's discussion Chinese Educators Look to American Classrooms
"Having first-hand experience at teaching in China on more than one occasion, I am all too familiar with this discussion. For those US educators who read the headline and think, "See, even the Chinese want to adopt our teaching practices. After…"

"This blog was viewed by 735 people, and liked by 5 members. What are we to make of this data? I cannot remember an article on School Leadership 20 having drawn such a large number of responses, but does it mean anything? Does this scrap of datum…"

Without data we will be relegated to the "Endangered Species" list

I am so frequently at a loss at to why we - teachers - are resistant to using data to a higher level than we are now. Every other profession is able to define, collect, analyze and manage data to improve both productivity and achievement. From the used car dealer to the girl working the counter at a hamburger joint, everyone uses data to drive performance, make decisions and increase productivity. We have not yet pulled the curtain completely to reveal the wizard hiding in the dark. Practice…See More

Data

Turning data into useful and actionable information - rather than a bureaucratic shackle on the minds of students and teachers - will be the primary challenge of this generation of educational leaders. Join in the discussion.See More

Saving Ourselves Using Data… A Response

I was not surprised by the amount of people, both teachers and administrators, who read my discussion and then commented through my website. But I was surprised by the responses, which ranged from weak agreements to those questioning which “side of the fence” I sit on. I sit firmly on all "three" sides of the student, teacher and administrator fence. If not, how will we ever move forward?We had a family reunion last night and I had the chance to speak with relatives who work in various school…See More

Can we save us from ourselves... using data?

With September right around the corner, I am sure we have all been following the changes that will be affecting our healthcare benefits. Alongside those articles we are reading about changes that will be taking place within our schools and classrooms regarding systems of evaluation for observations and tenure recommendations based on a handful of variables. Many of these changes are new for us, but they are not new for most other professions. Doctors, lawyers, dentists, and accountants have…See More

Dr. Michael L. Cubbin replied to Michael Keany's discussion With a Leader’s Signature, Does Size Matter?
"With the status of schools today,, this is an embarrassment. An article replete with allusions to the "size" of anything is not only in poor taste, but is but one reason we continue to drag our knuckles as we schlepp our way to school."

"This is not news to anyone who has successfully taught bilingual students or raised bilingual children. But while this may be called a "bilingual" approach, the L1 at-home teaching is more likely "immersion" where the school…"

I am a chemistry teacher and last year had 100% of my students pass the chemistry Regents exam. I have written two books about school: "Speak English with me" and "The Business of School (near completion)." I love teaching as much as I enjoy having been a chiropractor for 15 years.

Hello Michael,

I need to figure out time difference between here and there.  What time is this course?  I do not have access to video conferencing capable computer at home (old technology) so I'll connect through work.  Let me talk to our ET to see which lab will work.  Meanwhile, I'll need some sort of schedule so I can see how to work it in over here.

Geoff Hunt, Okinawa
