Building a Better Teacher - NYTimes.com - 20 views
There was no shortage of prescriptions at the time for how to cure the poor performance that plagued so many American schools. Proponents of No Child Left Behind saw standardized testing as a solution. President Bush also championed a billion-dollar program to encourage schools to adopt reading curriculums with an emphasis on phonics. Others argued for smaller classes or more parental involvement or more state financing.
This record encouraged a belief in some people that good teaching must be purely instinctive, a kind of magic performed by born superstars.
