ALERT TO LIBS
Please be seated.
I heard a short bit about what Obama wants to do with schools and teachers.
I heard his Secretary of Education make their case with Wolf Blitzer.
I liked most of what I heard.
I think they have a number of good ideas.
Promote teachers on merit.
The Secretary of education actually parroted my reasoning.
Let the Principals do the firing. They are closest to the situation.
Which means Principals that run crap schools will get the axe.
The dead weight moves out and a better manager can take their place.
Just like businesses.
Lengthen the school year.
Keep schools open longer for activities concerning arts and tutoring.
All great stuff.
We need educated folks to compete with other nations.
Japan, China. Germany. India.
We can acquire theirs, but this comes with risks.
