All educational administrators, consultants, college professors must teach a class in a public school at least once a year to stay employed
Educational administrators, education professors, and educational consultants rarely if ever have current experience in the public school classroom. I am proposing that there be a requirement that this group of people be required to teach in the public school one class every year so that they can see the impact of the ideas they teach, the decisions they make, and the actions they are asking teachers to implement on a first hand basis. Not AP classes or gate classes but just the same classes as every other teacher gets to deal with on a daily basis.
My thought is that it will give them time to pause and rethink what they are doing with out the aide of Teaching Assistants, Administrative Assistants, or the ability to come present and leave.
I am asking the folks of the TED community to comment on , improve, or disprove this idea with out resort to such complaints of not enough time to do this and do the job. It can be a summer course to any grade level below college and any subject they are credentialed or trained in.
