My favorite quote for the week comes from an article published today by Sabrina Laine at Education Week (You may need to register first to read the article).
“Generation Y teachers want to create, not conform. They want to color off the page, but are told to teach to the test. They want to work in small groups, but are given unmanageable numbers of students. They want to commune with colleagues online and across the school, but they are confined to their classrooms and limited to one-on-one teacher mentoring.”
The author is director of the National Comprehensive Center for Teacher Quality, a site that I checked out after reading the article- like the article, it is worth a few minutes of your time.
