My fundamental contention is that we really need to rethink educational practice. What we have right now, our new way of doing things, is nurturant neither to students nor teachers. Increasingly, we have moved to a hierarchy in which each level takes its toll. The teacher does more and more work, much of it tedious; the students follow school with excessive at home work. And administrators don’t help their staff virtually at all.
What follows are just some alternative possibilities that appeal to me. See what you think.
