We Have Met The Enemy

There's plenty of blame to spread around for what ills education. You can blame politicians, school board members, district and building administrators, parents. But, regrettably, I was again reminded today of the one principal obstacle standing in the way of meaningful education change. Teachers. (And, yes, I include myself.)

And that makes me incredibly sad.


  1. Where has your evidence come from to make that very powerful statement. You must have some evidence to deride your profession so strongly. Charles @Classcharts

    1. Just some decisions that were made yesterday.

  2. I can sympathize. I've had those days. I believe in what I do as an educator and I've invested in my profession. It's hard when you meet or work with other educators who feed negative stereotypes, who aren't as invested or competent, or who make bad decisions. Keep swimming!
