Be the Change you Want to See in Education

Be the Change you Want to See in Education:

 "Teachers are seeking early retirement because they cannot take the school system any longer. This is happening around the globe. Teachers need students like 18-year old, Nikhil Goyal to tell it like it is. The school system needs to change and fast.

I just came back from an international convention for EFL/ESL teachers of TESOL in Dallas. The conversations I had with teachers focused on how exams and teaching to the test are frustrating teachers and students alike. We all agreed that we need to force a bottom up change to keep the school system from collapsing. Policy makers are ignoring reality. Their refusal to listen to students and teachers is going to cause a huge walk out."
