Whose bright idea was it to put teacher assessment in the hands of the people that left teaching? Why is it presumed that school administrators should be paid more than professional educators? Why do we subject young children to standardized exams when almost all experts in early childhood education condemn the practice and the majority of most successful countries do not? Are math and science really the most important subjects, at every age, or are they just easier to assess expediently? In tough economic times why are the arts and teaching positions the first to be cut instead of coaching and administrative positions whose salaries are often exorbitant and importance questionable? Are the right people really making our educational choices?

About the Author:

Dan Oettel is an award-winning piano composer, author, and teacher of more than 5,000 students over twenty-five years. His words give voice to an untold number of frustrated American public school educators screaming to be heard on educational philosophies, but silenced in many cases by less qualified local educational hierarchies.
