Finally, someone who explains the problem in simple language – Dana Goldstein, author of THE TEACHER WARS: A young scholar’s history of 175 years of teaching in America. Watch the short video to hear her explain how teachers are only responsible for seven percent of student learning. Even better, read her book to understand our history of putting all of the responsibility for children onto educators.
When are we going to face up to this reality and address the other 93% of the equation? Can we talk about the real barriers to next generation’s success? And can we do it soon?
