Themark of an excellent teacher is his or her steel-rod toughness,his/her ability to take on superhuman tasks with ease and run fasterthan a speeding bullet. Indeed, this attitude is prevalent in thebusiness world (ever watch The Apprentice?) and it appears thisworship of toughness in teaching is another part of the plot behind NCLB to model education after the business world. Only thestrongest thrive. Hostile takeovers. Creative accounting. Thestrong shall rise to the top in the profession while the weak orsensitive fall away. We don't need them anyway---those teachers arefailures.And yet, we are supposedly trying to form a system under NCLB inwhich no child fails, but the teachers do. What kind of a crazyexample is that to put before our children? Children care about whathappens to the adults around them as well as themselves.Unfortunately this, to me, sounds a little like a personal teachingstyle kind of genocide. If there is NO ROOM for diversity of styleand ability in the workplace among the teachers then how can weaccomodate the diverse needs of all our students? We're on the roadto hypocrisy if we model education after Donald Trump's world. Notall of our students will ever make it to the top . Some willalways be bus drivers and not doctors and there is NOTHING wrongwith that! The world cannot function without bus drivers!I am lucky to be working for a district now that understands thatteachers need help in the form of aids and tutors for the children,not in terms of more of a workload and more supervisory personnelfor the teacher. They are not caught up in this trend to createsuperhumans in the classroom. They seem to really understand thatit takes a VILLAGE to raise a child---not just one person for 34kids 60 hours a week. And you know what? The kids are some of themost secure children I have ever met. They KNOW someone is alwayswatching out for them to see that they succeed. They don't wastetheir time trying to fake out the school or the teacher because theyknow someone in the chain of adults is going to get after them ifthey try any funny stuff.Kids need a lot of help these days. Life is zipping by, they seethousands of acts of serious violence on TV and in film by the timethey are 16, their family structure is frequently shaky---it's hardto be a kid in this crazy world. IMO, what our schools need is moreadults working with children, not more adults supervising the fewadults who are working with the children.OK. That's my speech for today.NotificationsSynopsisA young girl tells her friend about the traveling store her grandfather used to visit when he was a child.
