Education: Will We Ever Learn?

Education: Will We Ever Learn? | Brian W. Fleming PS - Professional Learning | Scoop.it

THE changes needed to professionalize American education won’t be easy. They will require money, political will and the audacity to imagine that teaching could be a profession on a par with fields like law and medicine. But failure to change will be more costly — we could look up in another 30 years and find ourselves, once again, no better off than we are today. Several of today’s top performers, like South Korea, Finland and Singapore, moved to the top of the charts in one generation.

 

Real change in America is possible, but only if we stop tinkering at the margins.
