I enjoy keeping up with learning (vs. "education") trends. Since my wife and I were involved in the early pioneer stages of homeschooling here in Virginia and since all 15 (soon to be 16, Lord willin') of my grandchildren are being homeschooled to one degree or another, learning is very important to me.
The following is a great idea - as long as homeschooling parents would be allowed to compete in the All-Star educator competition. Anyone have a problem with that? You shouldn't. My wife and I, along with all my children, are entitled to be considered "educators" every bit as much as someone teaching at the high school level and in possession of a Master's degree in education. We've got the successful track record to prove it.
It’s an idea so simple and so transformational it’s stunning it hasn’t already been implemented nationally.
Here it is: film America’s greatest K-12 teachers delivering their lessons and put them online in a one-stop shop website for students, parents, and young teachers to watch and learn from for free. Imagine the possibilities and benefits.
