“Cassandra’s Classroom Innovative Solutions For Education Reform”

Available on

Teachers are being treated more and more like Cassandra from Greek myth. Cassandra, as the story goes, could foresee the future correctly. Her curse was that no one believed her. I feel like a Cassandra. I have taught elementary school, grades 1-8, junior college and college courses. I have earned a PhD in educational psychology, and worked twenty years as a school psychologist. I wrote columns on education for twelve years. I believe I know the answers to the problems in education today or at least the right questions to ask. I believe many teachers and parents know the answers and the questions but only outside experts, mainly non-teaching men are believed. Reading these articles may give you insights which will enable you to be part of the solution and not part of the problem.
