Inspiring Educators Who Inspire Future Leaders
As politicians, parents, and business executives fight over the future of education – I ask educators to remember who we serve. In order to ensure that all of our schools are able to provide a quality education, we must do what is best for students and not what is most convenient for adults. tlb
I love that you posted this. I was just thinking the other day while planning that what I was planning is going to take a large amount of time for me and groaned for a minute but I know it will be better for my students in the long run so the time really is well spent!
Thanks for all of your support, kedavis99! Planning for each lesson and activity does take up a great deal of time but as you said it pays off in the long run. tlb

Do Our Personal Preferences Influence What We Teach? Here’s one point of view that should always be at the top of the list.
Thank you for sharing this essential question on your blog. I appreciate the support!
I just reblogged this myself. Of course, our social standards influence a lot of what we teach. Thank you for stating the obvious. If I ever had to present a concept about our culture, for instance, i always stated at the beginning of our discussion, that there are many beliefs in this area. It usually opened up a lot of discussion and allowed my students to have personal opinions. They were in the 8-10 year age range, but were beginning to form their own opinions. Cigarette smoking, as an example, opened up a Pandora’s box. I was presenting “the obvious” but many of my students had parents who still smoked. They were very uncomfortable but our state curriculum required me to teach about smoking.
I worry that its obvious to educators and not to others, which (I believe) is making our work harder. tlb
