Thanks for sharing! I wholeheartedly agree with this articles view of teacher preparedness. We need serious conversation that includes all of the stakeholders at the table. However, I continue to wonder if or how these discussions can be a catalyst for real reform in our education system. I think part of the implied (or possibly personally projected) message is that some of the silliness is that which we are trying to prepare: standardization, understaffed classrooms, underfunded districts, etc.. The optimist in me says that having all the stakeholders at the table will bring about constructive positive change. So I must ask, will it actually happen?
