Teach This! Teaching with lesson plans and ideas that rock #teaching 03/29/2012

  • GOOD.is | Unhappy in the Classroom (Scaling)

    This infographic shares about the dissatisfaction level of teachers. While it points at specific areas such as increasing class size and out of date educational technology as issues, it misses some of the big issues I hear: paperwork ad nauseum, administrators that think that students have to be catered to instead of held accountable (many teachers aren't being backed up by admin even when very disrespectful behavior happens) as well as stress from a pretty unsupportive general public. The teachers I know are resilient, amazing people, and they will thrive and move ahead. We will keep our eye on students.
