No Teacher Left Behind
21st Century Skills Needed
I have a roommate who is a Strength and Conditioning Coach and he has to attend a set amount of conferences, and I feel as though teachers should be required to do the same.
Do I think all teachers should share the same practices, essentially, no. Honestly, teachers should be just as much individuals as their students are, however, I do believe that all teachers should strive to teach social etiquette, digital literacy, and critical thinking skills.
My thinking is thus. If students are required to take these state tests, as I had to take so many times in my life, I believe that teachers should be required to take more advanced versions of these state tests. That way, students are more assured that their teachers are up-to-date so to speak, and students don't feel as though these state tests are a waste of time.
How Prepared Are We
I think teachers are very prepared to follow ITSE standards and can only become more prepared by the generation as technology of the digital age is forcing educators to keep up.
