What is Good Teaching? A Reflection | Common Dreams

What is Good Teaching? A Reflection | Common Dreams:

 "Last week in this space I wrote about how business was trying to take over public education so it could cash in on the $1 trillion the U.S. spends on it every year.  I criticized charter schools — the preferred takeover mechanism — for pushing low-cost, uncredentialed “teachers” and shallow, downloaded curriculum.  Charters are an ideal business model for making profits, but terrible for producing high quality education.  Given charter schools’ own dismal record and the stated motives of charter chain operators, this criticism is valid."
