Parents Got Punk’d

Taylor’s open letter to American parents:

I’m writing directly to parents because nobody in the administration, the district office, the state DOE or the Federal DOE will listen. As the layers of bureaucracy softly fold over and smother classroom practice, there’s hardly a sound. So we teacher bloggers are trying to make one. If you don’t listen either, we’re all in serious trouble.

Keep it mind next year.

I'm Dan and this is my blog. I'm a former high school teacher, former graduate student, and current head of teaching at Desmos. More here.

    Thanks, Dan. You never stop impressing me. You should be president of the edu-whatever-sphere. I like how you do things, and even though I don’t comment often (too much math!) you are teaching me more than you know.

    That’s an excellent teacher blogger.

    Thanks, team. Glad to have you both contributing, or lurking, whichever the case.

    Thanks for the link- it was a good read (and think) as I try to sum up EducationLand 2007 in the back of my mind. Happy New Year to you!
