The September your children are walking into

Started this discussion. Last reply by Duane Johnson Apr 27, 2017. 1 Reply

            The hazy crazy days of summer are soon to be replaced by the structured education of our children. Some schools start in late August while others wait until the traditional end of summer…Continue

Competition has always defined our schools and society

Started Feb 1, 2015 0 Replies

            Webster defines compete as, “ striving for something (as a prize or a reward) for which another is also striving.” The definition goes on to describe competition as, “ a contest in which…Continue

Enabling our kids out of their future

Started Jan 25, 2014 0 Replies

                  Webster defines “enable” as to give ability, power, or means to make able”.  At first you look at this definition and it seems to have few negative connotations.  But, when you take…Continue

Thanks Mr. Hawking for teaching people how to look into the sky

            A rather famous statement made by people who hope to explain that something is not difficult because it is not rocket science has been around for my entire life. If something is too difficult people go on to explain it is rocket science. Stephen Hawking showed the world that rocket science is simply looking into our sky in order to wonder where we all came from, when it all began, and where we are going.             Like most people who lived through a time when science fiction…See More

What kind of a world do we want our grandkids to live in?

            Everything that means anything is local. Many people think national news is what makes all of our futures. This is wrong. Where we live defines how we live. What our neighbors believe and what our children are being taught defines what we are and what we will become. In other words, what kind of a world do we want our children and grandchildren to live in.?             Anytime anyone discusses the concepts of gun ownership, laws, and definition there are many people who immediately…See More

Believe nothing what you hear…….

            On March 23, 1872, the concept of believe nothing that you hear and only half of what you see was published by The Raleigh Daily News. This statement is also associated with an 18th century statement English publication. This concept has also been associated with Edgar Allen Poe. This idea is now at the forefront of our political realities. With the onset of “fake news” and the obvious attack on our nation’s political system the idea that you believe nothing that you hear and only…See More

Collaboration has to be the future of public education.

            Education is once again changing. I am a retired teacher and have suffered through many education systems that were all said to save our public education system. Some of these include the open classroom (at which time I taught the entire school chemistry), differentiated learning (as if we weren’t doing that before), no child left behind (when would any teacher leave any student behind), and now the beginning and end of common core. Yes, you guessed it; I am old. When I began…See More

"As a junior elementary education major, this article really resonates with me. You mention earning respect from your students. This is advice that I have been given a lot and something that I have been told in my courses. So when you offer advice on…"
