Equity in education through a different lens: On my way home I was replaying my day, as usual, and this is what I came up with. Teachers out there please let me know your thoughts.
If teachers have to teach to the test, maybe we do not need to spend money in books, because they are unnecessary. I figured if you purchase a textbook, just one per core class, meaning English, Math, Science and Social Studies at $75.00 a piece, that’s $300.00 per child. Now multiply that for the number of students in your system.
Teaching to the test is not about learning, is about playing a number game. I want for Congress to stop their foolishness and re-authorize ESEA NOW, with an emphasis on academic growth for each student attending our public schools.
We must find the courage to do the right thing, equity in education for ALL!
