This article explains one of the major problems with our education system: teachers unions.
Most of you know that we are totally for organized labor. (In fact, we believe that organized labor should be ten times bigger than it is.) But we don’t like unions that are corrupt and disincentivize new teachers. If teachers could run themselves with elected unpaid officers, with paid staff to do the heavy lifting, they would feel appreciated and have better attitudes (in large part due to the higher pay). There would be less administration and more use of technology in class, leading to less burnout.
This article on teachers unions explains a lot. We are excited that parents are starting to see the flaws in our education system (at least that is one good thing that’s come out of the pandemic!).
Parents needs to come together to fight or eliminate school boards. That means dads need to get involved too! It’s not fair for moms to have to the majority of the heavy lifting when it comes to our kids education.
We need to integrate ways of teaching and learning that are fun and proven to work. We believe one of the best ways to do that is with debate. World Debating Forum provides guides that shows teachers how to integrate debating into the classroom. It’s a great way to get more kids excited about learning, all while working together and helping one another. Class becomes more fun and helps lighten the load for teachers. Best part? The forum is free to Teachers.
