Why has education remained SO much the same? Why are we STILL focusing on the same things and not seeing change?
There are many industries that have disappeared or are on their ways out because of changes in the way things are done because of technology.
- Travel Agents
- Music Publishers
- Book Publishers
- Print Newspapers
Now apply that to education. What are we doing? Why don't we see that things are changing? We KNOW that standardized tests do not help our students. We KNOW that Art, Music, PE enrich learning rather than taking away from it. We KNOW that the world is changing. Is Public Education headed on the same path as the print newspaper? Is it worth hanging on and trying harder? How do we get a vision of a new way of learning and teaching?
