Teaching and Professional Development
Many of today’s classrooms are designed and practiced as teaching classrooms, where the actions and learning are focused on and driven by the teacher. Teaching classrooms however, do not match the needs and expectations for 21st Century learning. To be successful in the 21st Century students need to be engaged in learning classrooms, where the actions and learning are focused on student outcomes and classroom practices that strengthen and deepen not only students’ content knowledge but their overall ability to think deeply, communicate, analyze, problem solve, and take responsibility for their learning.

Inequality and Education in Newark

Inequality and Education in Newark | Teaching and Professional Development | Scoop.it
Dale Russakoff and Jelani Cobb on segregation and education in Newark and elsewhere, sixty years after Brown v. Board of Education.
Rudy Azcuy's insight:

What lessons can be learned? 


Following a hundred-million-dollar donation by Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, teams of consultants began attempting to reform Newark’s public schools. But, Russakoff says, they “really haven’t spent much time at all in public schools in the communities. They’re really about management reforms, from the top down, that they believe will make a huge difference in the delivery of education to children. But it does leave out the most important story in education, which is what’s going on with the kids and the families in the neighborhoods.” A big part of what’s lost by not involving communities in reforming their schools is an understanding of the contours of poverty and racism in America.
