Trending...The Elimination of Professional Teachers

Greetings Fellow Hoosier Teachers!
Not feeling the love from the Indiana General Assembly? There is a good reason! If schools and teachers are going to be judged by their standardized test scores, then teachers and schools have no other choice than to teach to the test within a narrowed curricula. Fine Arts classes? Creativity? Rigor is more important! What about children who are not good test takers? No excuses!!!  Why is the Indiana General Assembly and other policy makers making life difficult for professional educators? Here is an eye opening perspective from Stephen Krashen.

  1. Brianna A.- This is a common phenomenon in education and the arts it seems.My friend Erika is an artist with a B.A. in Fine Arts, and has interest in becoming an art teacher or host public classes of her own. Maybe if art education was hosted outside of the classroom they would be even more beneficial.
