So this is what I want to basically do with my life for a while after I get out of here, if I don't decide to travel around the world for a few more years. I came across this article in the atlantic which my mommy so kindly sends me every month...that and my rolling stone and bottles of pepper parmesan dressing..but this
offers the proposal of raising teacher's pay and changhing the sick (extremely sick!) teacher's union that exists throughout our educationaly(sp?) dying country. It's just sort of interesting that's all. It makes sense to raise teacher pay and to change the pay scale based on performance or desired professional skills.
I think with this last month I'm going to start putting more time into my education research. Plus the other two sites of people I know writing stuff have vouched for a good book by someone named Gatto or something...I like books written by guys who sound like they are in the mafia. Changing the fundamental education system of children doesn't interest me though. Changing over our dying manufacturing/information economy to a knowledge economy via dsitance learning and skills based/organic curriculum (e-learning as the gov't calls it now...god I hate when the gov't gets a hold of stuff than everyone buys it all back...we had it 3 years ago people!!!) does thrill me...I'll get back to you more on it later...I may start a section on all that crazy stuff in my website tonight...just for my own good...to get all my ducks in a row before I return home and start looking to start my life again...
