Reply to Nancy Flanagan's 'Shutting Teachers Up'

The article was in EdWeek but the first two paragraphs were posted here on 2.0, however, you could only reply to Nancy Flanagan if you subscribed to EdWeek. So here is a sample of my column on Education:

I disagree with Ravitch’s understanding. Many charter schools here in NYS are Public Charter Schools which means, primarily, that the teachers are not members of the Union. The Union (UFT) has a strange relationship to teachers and administrators in terms of its effect on…

Scams and Sabotage in Teaching

It’s a common feature throughout public school education: methods that not only don’t work but seem designed not to work.

This is so puzzling that when you first encounter the possibility, your mind rejects it. Why would people in education design methods that defeat education?

 I think New Math was a glaring example. Reform Math continues the same tradition. The Internet is full of videos of children crying because they cannot understand the…

Within education, there are those who believe teachers are underpaid, under inordinate pressure, challenged to do more with less, and facing…

“A kid today can likely tell you about the Amazon rain forest- but not about the last time he or she explored the woods in solitude, or lay in a field listening to the wind and watching the clouds move.”

Richard Louv

Last Child in the Woods
