No Teacher Left Behind
Creating Opportunities for Teachers to Continue Learning
Should all teachers across the country use certain practices?
How would you suggest we, as a nation, provide consistent learning opportunities for teachers and ensure that they are not left behind in learning about new techniques and strategies?
Should there be a consistent standard for all teachers to meet, just as students must pass high stakes tests?
Teachers should also be made aware of what the standards are for their classrooms and given trainings on how to make sure those standards are met without teaching to the test. They could even do peer to peer trainings where you take a few experienced teachers and pair them with the newer teachers. The experienced teachers can give the new teachers insight and advice on their classrooms; where the new teachers can bring in their new ideas on teaching for the experienced teachers to consider implementing in their own classrooms. It would bring the teachers to feel more like a community and hold each other to the standards making sure they are being met.
