Glenn Beck , Aug 28th rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.<quoted text>
What changes would you suggest? I bet one change would be that each teacher take a $3000 pay cut. Then they should increase their co-pay on healthcare. Tenure should be eliminated and the pension system should end. I bet those would be your changes. And if you disagree, then tell me a few chnges you want to make. Since I was a teacher for 37 years, I will tell you but you won't believe me that change in education is nothing new. We changed approaches, techniques and strategies all the time. We implemented new programs and taught math and reading with many different programs and methodolgies. We used programs that had sections that provided activities for the gifted and slow learners. We followed the educational research on what works and scheduled in-service programs that trained teachers using new approaches. Do you realize the numnber of educational books and periodicals that are out there that stresses change. Do you realize all the changes that was brought about by the PSSA. You are talking about curriculum change to address the objectives and standards established by the PSSA. Look I could go on forever on this topic of change.
I have heard that about other countries surpassing us for 20 years. Where would you rather be- China, Korea, Japan. Why is it that all the graduate of Am. education go onto running the businesses of this country and making it still the greatest country in the world unless you think differently.
You hear "a lot of people say" this and that. Well I am telling you what it is like because I experienced it. If your source is Glenn Beck- you do realize he is one-sided- his side and no one else's side.
Not sure what his theme will be about yet but it's bound to be good. "I Have a Scream" ? I'll be there.
