As I look at the current stated of education – specifically the meddling of government in education – I’m more than a little distraught. Education is the only field I personally know of where we use untested, unproven strategies and have no idea if they will actually work or not! From the way the day is structured to the way students are divided by age even to the time of day that school starts, none of it is based on any reliable research. And yet amazing educators are called to persist in a system that is very broken. If only there was some way to allow educators to do what was truly best for the students instead of what was most convenient for the money people.
