Recently I read an article titled “Tenure is not the problem: Debunking education reform myths — and providing a real path forward” and, though the article is much longer than any person really wants to actually read and not skim, I suggest it to any educator, administrator, teacher, or person concerned about our education system that believes there is a problem with our education system. The author, Morgan Agnew, provides insight from a teacher’s perspective on the problems within the education system and what truly are, in one individual’s opinion, the viable solutions.
I’m not sure if I agree or disagree with all or any part of the article, though it is deeply rooted in fact and experience and provides more solutions than any we are seeing from anyone with actual power to improve the issue.
So go ahead, give it a read. Tell me what you think in the comments below or simply keep your comments to yourself and write a passionate letter to the feds about how they should listen to Agnew. My only request: Don’t consume this information and then stay stagnant. Get up and do something, make a change! Bring awareness to the issues in the education system and attention to the fact that others (who aren’t in power but probably should be) have ideas to address the issue!
