NYT on Teacher Education: An Industry of Mediocrity

NYT on Teacher Education: An Industry of Mediocrity

A dear friend passed this article my way which sparked a good conversation between us.  She, a former educator from Souther California, and I, a newly minted Teacher from Canada, share the same heart for children and belief in the power of education.  It is interesting for me studying at Columbia University’s Teacher’s College and being in the thick of the teacher education cycle, after recently going through a Canadian teacher education program.  It gives me a new lens with which to view both countries approach to teacher ed, and just how each society values the merits and inputs of its educators. The article is worth the read, whether you are a teacher or a parent or just a concerned citizen interested in investing in the future of our children
