I am a 33 year veteran of the Public Schools system. I have taught students from grade 1 to grade 12, in both academics and arts. With my associate, Ryan Sager, I have spent the last 5 years researching, discussing, debating, constructing, and de-constructing a new model for educational reform. We intend to spend the next 5 years in disemminating our concept and building a support base for it.
An idea worth spreading
America's public school system is fatally flawed. Its design is based on several false premises. It's time to redesign the system from the bottom up, instead of putting the blame on teachers, students and parents. The fact is, no one is to blame, we just inherited a system that just can't work in this day and age. The flaws in the current system makes it impossible to reach the stated goals of the enterprise. It can be fixed if we're willing to put politics and egos aside and make education the priority we profess it to be. Real change requires real change.
