A number of educators have shared worrisome stories lately.
Their work, words, and needs are not met with respect.
They've been told not to speak up or share, and further, they have been lauded for good ideas, but told not to use them.
It's very painful.
Why would you challenge hard working, dedicated teachers so much?
Why would you make it difficult for educators to do the good work they want to do?
Why wouldn't you answer their questions, respond to their research, and work with them with care to develop good programs?
It just doesn't make sense to me.
