Here is an article not to be missed. This was sent to me today by a reader, who had found it in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The author is AJ-C guest columnist Jim Arnold, an educator of 48 years' experience. His career track was teacher, assistant principal, principal and then superintendent. He is now an adjunct professor at Columbus (Georgia) State University.
He hits the nail squarely on the head when identifying today's problems in education and why teachers have been fleeing for years.
How does this sound to you? Familiar?
From his opinion piece in the newspaper: "Over time, the beliefs that 'all children can learn' and 'all children can succeed' translated into “'all children will succeed at high levels.' ”
He puts "equity" right where it belongs - in the dumpster.
But what do we have here in Richland 2?
Be sure to take the time to read and digest this article. If you aren't an AJ-C subscriber, pay the 99¢ for six months and become one. It's a real newspaper.
Many thanks to the reader who sent this to me.
