“Everybody is a genius. But, if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it’ll spend its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
It is well known in the world of academia that each student learns differently. At the very least, there are multiple ways in which humans may learn. In spite of this knowledge, teachers are taught to teach in only a few remote ways which then applies to only select students. What happens to the other students? They quit, flunk out, give up, settle for just passing … they stop short of their innate abilities. How pathetic that Professional Educators willingly yield to the “will of the Union,” and teach to the bottom and let the others find their own way. Bargaining Away Quality has become a way of life all across America. Surely, we can do better, can’t we?
