Sorry, but I Won’t Think for You

Sorry, but I Won’t Think for You | 21st Century Education - USA | Scoop.it
As a school administrator and former special education teacher, I have tremendous respect and high regard for teachers. Occasionally, the teaching field can be extremely-difficult, stressful, and full of delayed gratification.

“No thanks. I choose to do nothing.” | Dangerously Irrelevant

“No thanks. I choose to do nothing.” | Dangerously Irrelevant | 21st Century Education - USA | Scoop.it

Many "average" citizens and parents are accepting inferior opportunities for their child(ren), while simultaneously paying for it with their tax dollars. The status quo, ladies and gentlemen, is a much lower bar now than it has been in many decades. The present system of education in the US is more oppressive than liberating. It has becomes more debilitating then enabling. It is faulty in being a conveyor belt assembly that pre-dates the 1920s. Though most parents have "choose to do nothing," most students have responded...but their choice of following peers is often self-destructive. We really need real change...and we need to do something. No loving parent would leave a child to fend for themselves, much less ignore the rattlesnake in the crib.
