Who controls today’s conversation about what education should be in the classroom? Bill Gates? The media? Politicians? Why? What about the teachers? Where is their voice? Social experiments and assumptions aside, shouldn’t we follow the models implemented by the successful teachers who inspire, train, and motivate our children? With one-size-fits-all models like Common Core being thrust upon us and our kids, it’s time to step back and think about the role of the teacher in the classroom and how that human element can make all the difference.
Our guest, David Greene, is an educator, author, and a champion of experiential learning. He is going to help us better understand why we need a system of education that gives teachers the freedom and flexibility to focus on our children individually to inspire them to be great in their own ways.
