We must teach the teachers before teaching students.

It is a dangerous problem when a teacher teaches wrong ideas or materials in a classroom. This has far reaching consequences to students, spreading wrong ideas from class to class and school to school.

    Oct 8 2011: Learning should be a two-way street. Teachers should work to improve their communication skills. Students should work to improve their listening and learning skills.

    One good way to facilitate this is have them do things together, like read, write, etc, and share their work. Over time, they could witness their personal growth and have a shared experience of learning and growing together, an experience no one could take away. This develops trust.
