Education’s Sports Analogy

11 Jan

When I think of the direction in which the education system, I think of the NBA’s recent lockout. This is a strong disconnect between administrators and students, such as there was between the players and owners. It seems that the best teachers of the crop teach at the most priveleged of schools. Unfair advantage. Most of the teachers at poverty stricken communities burn out far too easily and are extremely underpaid. Our students are numbers in a system, just mere statistics. NCLB (No Child Left Behind) policy and logic has failed us greatly as we have lost our advantage in the sciences and technological advances. How do we keep our schools from the same favoritism shown in the college’s BCS system? We have to create a system of equality that disperses teacher’s to the needy as well as the deserving. We should care about teacjomg mathematics, reading skills, and inspiring our kids to be problem solvers instead of protecting political and corporate interests. This is how we can make America great again.
