Re: "Pointless Education – An Alternative to Grades"
I really wish the general population would have just experienced the same faculty meeting I had to sit through this afternoon.
It was an hour-long meeting about how to teach, how to grade, how to prove we as teachers are doing our jobs with tons of paperwork.
Of course the principal hasn't taught in many years and when he did, he didn't do any of the stuff he's requiring us to do.
Oh well - just another reason why I'm leaving public education for something better.
I love teaching - but my job really isn't about teaching, unfortunately.
