Do you know how teachers are certified?
Did you know that some teachers make no more than $5,000 extra annually over the course of their 30 year career?
Would you be surprised to know that the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) has comprised a set of recommendations for teaching math that may not be based on sound research? More troubling, educational agencies are using these suggestions to develop curriculum and assessments!
Finally, someone from inside the education system tells it like it is in plain language. Lynise Lassiter, a master educator, speaks directly to educators and parents by blowing wide open the social and psychological dynamics that keep educators from delivering sound educational services. Most important, she holds parents accountable for allowing their children to move through the system deficient in critical skills. However, she balances her criticism by offering suggestions that do not demean, but empower parents to take more responsibility for their children's education. This is a must read for all prospective, new and seasoned educators, school board members, local and state government officials, and most of all, parents.
