I watched the new documentary, "Waiting For Superman" last nite. It was a compelling film about some of the factors behind the continued erosion in American education. You want to make changes in the education scene here, you have to go through a monolithic structure, go up against teacher unions, teacher contracts, teachers who may be utterly abysmal teachers but because they have "tenure," they can't be dealt with properly...the list goes on and on.
There are a myriad of problems associated with getting our children taught properly. Watch this next video and you'll see a technology that has been quietly solving many of these problems. Thousands of teachers and millions of students world wide are using this technology with overwhelming success.
The documentary "Waitinig for Superman" did shed light on why this technology has not yet been embraced by the public school systems here in the U.S. the way it has overseas.
Let's say a group of people (we'll call them teachers' unions) are raking in millions of dollars to fix a bad situation that does NOT improve despite the constant infusion of money. In actuality, the situation continues to deterioriate. Yet more and more money streams in. Then a technology presents itself that actually works and costs VERY little to implement. Hmm. You just might be concerned about losing that river of money coming in.
Money, power, control...the usual suspects.
But things are changing. More and more teachers and parents are seeing that their hands are tied by the very people supposedly representing them. And meanwhile the technology presented in this video continues to march forward creating one success after another.
Truth always makes its way to the light of day.
Enjoy the video!
