Re: “Pushing for Public Education

As a classroom teacher, then teacher educator, now retired, I have watched the increasingly aggressive take-over by corporate interests—textbook sellers and testing agents (Pearson most notably)—to the detriment of student learning and welfare. I see really good, caring, teachers stymied by the increasingly onerous teach-to-the-test constraints that prevent them from teaching-the-child. Good teaching is done by good teachers. Good teachers come from top-notch teacher-training institutions that include extensive, supervised practicum and internship components. Set high standards for those institutions, as we do for medical schools, then trust the teachers who emerge from them to make the curricular decisions that will meet the needs of the particular students who walk through their classroom doors.
