Here is a great blog post from I.N.K., Interesting Non-fiction for Kids. It accurately describes the prevalent atmosphere of education today and provides a path to genuine success. Do we have the courage to take a stand?

This slideshare is from the 2010 ISTE Conference which just concluded. It was presented by Chris Lehmann of the Science Leadership Academy in Philidelphia. Please share your thoughts and impressions.

There are administrators who have been educators and understand the teaching process. They are forward thinkers who empower teachers to use their skills and creativity to connect with students and help them find success. When a teacher comes to them with an idea, they say, “Great! How can I best help you?” They are both dreamers and enablers.

Then, there are administrators who administrate by following a list of rubrics. They only make decisions based on their rubrics. If something comes along that doesn’t quite fit their model, they’re lost. Those admins do not make decisions based on the needs of students. They make decisions based on adherence to their administrative formulas. They neither dream or enable. They demand and expect. A teacher can differentiate instruction as long as all teachers do it the same way and that instruction has received the administrative stamp of approval.

Thanks to @ShellTerrell for sharing this link. I am looking forward to your comments.

  • Netflix's 'Dogs' is so much more than another funny pet video November 16, 2018
    Don't get me wrong: I love a good funny pet compilation. (That's practically the only thing YouTube's "play next" algorithm suggests for me anymore.) But, in the best ways imaginable, Netflix's Dogs is so much more than just another cute clip. Executive produced by Amy Berg and Glen Zipper, this six-part anthology series documen […]

  • The peculiar history behind Black Friday's name November 16, 2018
    Black Friday: Some love it for its amazing deals, some hate it because their family members are anxious to finish Thanksgiving dinner to go out and shop.

  • Whoops! Prosecutor accidentally reveals charges against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange in court filing November 16, 2018
    The U.S. government has filed charges against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange — and the reason we know is because of a copy-and-paste error. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kellen S. Dwyer accidentally dropped in two references to the sealed charges against Julian Assange in a filing for a separate unsealed case completely unrelated to Wikileaks. The charges agains […]

  • 'Creed II' is no 'Creed', but it packs a solid punch all the same November 16, 2018
    In some ways, Creed II feels like a regression from its predecessor, a step back into the shadows of the Rocky franchise.  Where 2015's Creed used that legacy to forge something new, Creed II leans hard on Rocky nostalgia, rehashing Rocky IV's Creed vs. Drago fight through their sons.  SEE ALSO: Creed the band reviews 'Creed' the movie It […]
