The Toxic Culture of Education

Please check out the link above! I absolutely agree with everything Mr. Joshua Katz is saying. Education has taken a dark turn where numbers and standardize exams are the sole definers for a students potential. This problem is simply not deep rooted in education, but how the nation values education as a whole. Many teachers are underpaid and over worked. If the United States perspective on teachers can change, then we can begin seeing a stronger value in the position as a whole. We need to look at this problem at all aspects and ask ourselves the hard hitting questions such as: Do we have the best professionals in the classroom? Do we provide our educators with the necessary resources for success? Are our teachers put in a position for success? How much has poverty impacted our community, especially our educational community?
