The second half of Teaching 2030 is a great way to end this course… giving hope to all teachers how love what they do and hope to always have a role in the Educational System.
On Page 171 the authors list six levers that must change in order to pursue a better future:
1)Engaging the public with a new vision for teaching and learning
- This would take a lot of convincing, especially in low-income districts
2)Rethinking school finance so it drives new investments and Partnerships
- Would be wonderful if this idea can work!
3)Redefining preparation and licensing to ensure truly highly qualified and effective teachers
- I think that this is an important
4)Cultivating working conditions that make high-needs school “easier to staff’
- This is a complex situation, I agree that we need to have great teachers in our classrooms but maybe the way teachers are assessed should be different.
5)Reframing accountability for better results
6)Transforming teacher unions into professional guides
I think that the authors create a great plan for our future educators and education although it will mean a lot change in what educators are use to as of now. In the past teachers are not always so ready for change and often it can be a battle. I think that change is needed, technology is changing so quickly and our students are growing in this digital world that will create a new sense of learning.
I still think that idea is out there… and there are so many disticts that are behind that one large change I just can’t see happening.
