Hello world!

Welcome to a blog dedicated to supporting civil discussion and debate about the current state, and potential future, of teaching in US public K-12 schools.

As mentioned in the “About” section, this blog is unabashedly supportive of teachers and teaching in the face of “reforms” that have changed the fundamental dynamics of education in America.

With more reforms being contemplated within the political arena, I believe it is imperative for teachers to have a louder, clearer voice in the process.

Future posts will focus on specific issues facing teachers today.

Certainly the profound impact of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) reform legislation will receive special attention, as will the changes currently being touted within the Obama administration and in Congress.

Stay tuned. With your help we can help get the word out about how consequences of recent and proposed education reforms will impact teachers, schools and students.

Thanks in advance,

Vic Krohn, soon-to-be-retired teacher (effective July 1, 2010)

    Hi Vic,
    This is so needed and the power of numbers pushing the debate is vital to making the educator’s perspective known. We have discussed how damaging to children the current policies are and how the schools/systems pervert the intent of the policies to be compliant rather than honestly attempting to educate children. And then of course there is the lack of support by parents and others when teachers try to hold kids accountable for engaging in their own educations. So much wrong…and so many kids harmed.

    I’m looking forward to an open discussion about the things that are usually only grumbled about behind the doors of the faculty room! Good idea Vic!!
