John Baker: Educators Are the Heart of the Education System

John Baker: Educators Are the Heart of the Education System:

 "America is under the microscope. Other countries are looking closely to see if we can increase our international competitiveness, and it's evident that we need more students completing high school and college, more grads pursuing graduate degrees, and more learners earning better grades. In my talks with educators all over the U.S., it is clear to me that mainstream methods of teaching and assessment create a counter-productive environment that fails to produce the students we need to be competitive. One example is the 1.2 million students who leave high school every year without a diploma. This is a tremendous waste of human and economic potential for students and for society as a whole."
