We all read headlines about what is right and wrong with education, hear sound bites about education, and are bombarded by people outside the field wondering what is happening in our classrooms today.
It is tough to be a teacher today. One reason it is tough is because high stakes testing take precedence in our classrooms and schools.
It is tough to be a student today because there is reading at home, homework, sports, family time, and other activities to squeeze into a time called life.
It is tough to be a parent today because when trying to work, provide, be there , help with homework, cheer on the sports, create family time, and add on other activites.. it is tough.
There are no clear answers. We all just keep plugging along doing the best we can. Teachers, students, and parents.
