Ok I'll join the movement today to wear red in support of education, but let's be crystal clear, I am not happy about it!
Why? Well it is an insult. Why do we need to raise awareness of school teachers? The reason you are what you are is because...gasp...you went to school! You had teacher who....wait for it....had a ton of education and knows more than you!
If you say to me, well we need to start thinking outside the box when it comes to education. My response to you would be, I agree and I hear you loud and clear. BUT you still need someone who knows how to put the box together. Why in the world would I want someone in charge of education, who doesn't know education?
I ask you this:
I didn't think so, we expect our professionals to have the education and experience to be our leaders. Educators, teachers and educational administrators are the ultimate leaders. They taught you how to put your box together because, well....they are educated to know it all!
I'll leave you with this. I have a BS in Education, 20 year of experience working with children, and am wrapping up my M.Ed in Education this year. I have more experience and education than Ms. DeVos. #heshouldhavepickedme
