Want to improve schools?

Let the Teachers take over

This was an interesting article. But I think it comes down to the classic workers versus management debate. Administration has a set of parameters that they have to work with and teachers are trying to educate to the best of their ability with limited resources. Perhaps there is an issue with not allowing those who have the most contact with the student have the least amount of say so over what ultimately happens in the schools, but if all parties are supposedly in agreement with trying to educate children, why is there a schism?

Without taking into consideration the larger issues of school finance and administration, a school that fully supports its teachers in a way that is not solely monetary can only be to the benefit of the students.

  1. There is fault on both ends of the spectrum. You have laziness and corruption on both ends that already doesn’t allow for adequate education, so if teachers take over then things may just get worse.

  2. That’s a possibility but it shouldn’t not be tried because of the possibility, especially since the idea is advocating allowing teachers to do what they do best and set the course of the education instead of letting administrators do it.
    Looking at the current status, I cannot see how the approach would be too much more detrimental than what’s already in place.
