This comment is directed at Martin Rayala's review. His comments that educators are only concerned with numbers, yada, yada, miss the point of the world's educational value, sadden, or rather - sicken, me. He goes on to say that teachers complain, and that designers don't - they just solve problems. Pompous anyone? Teachers have less and less creative control in the classroom, due to government's mandates; common curriculum, rote instruction, subject timelines / schedules and various programs. If teachers were allowed to use their professional skills, trainings and experiences, both in and out of the classroom, yes, we would be producing lovers of learning, of life and happy individuals with inquisitive minds, all of which procure academically strong students. Federal and state mandates prevent us from doing so. It seems that all on the OUTSIDE of education are the ones concerned with test scores. Teachers know the true meaning of standardized scores and their rather small and invalid assessment of students as a whole. Kids are dropping out, losing interests and opportunities to find out what might inspire them. Get the education coaches, those that have never taught!, out of the classrooms, lay off with the data this and data that, and let us do what we know how to do - inspire the desire to learn, which is THE key. All else follows, including scoring well on a fill in the bubble test.Read more ›
