NOT a Business… Rethinking Schools Online

p6_educationfactory_2aWhen I hear admonitions, to “run schools like a business”, it’s hard not to scream.  (I will try, but I’m not making any promises.)  This is a wonderful essay, for the teaching profession…

“We have to remember, education is education, a humane and human process. It is not competition or production. It is not a business, and business leaders really don’t know much about it. Education is not their area of expertise….

…As educators, we need to shed our subordinate status and sense of inferiority. We should assert that schools work best when educators,in dialogue with parents and other citizens?are recognized as far more competent to design educational experiences than corporate officials.”
