New Year’s Resolutions for Public Education
Can anyone think of New Year’s Resolutions for public education? Focusing on middle and high school troubles, here are a few I’ve rattled off the top of my head:
1. Put the interests of students before the interests of adults.
2. Focus on academics.
3. Focus on classroom management and discipline.
4. Have high expectations.
5. Teach students to think think think.
6. Work with the money you have instead of worrying about the money you think you deserve.
‘Tis a work in progress. If anyone feels like adding to the list or debating its contents, I’m all ears.
