TeachersCount Blog Strives to Raise the Status of the Teaching Profession
The new blogging series for the 2011 - 2012 academic school years began in September. Discussions are changing month to month, each month focusing on a different topic. October’s topic is standardized testing. Some aspects being explored are: High stakes testing- is it distorting and undermining the learning process? The survival of schools and teachers has become so dependent on test scores, is this giving powerful incentive to cut corners?
If you’re not reading the TeachersCount Blog you’re missing out!  The bloggers are Keith Newman a teacher in the inner city of Philadelphia; Cathy Wilson, a junior high school art teacher in Utah; Esther Wojcicki, a high school journalism teacher in Palo Alto, California; Darla Moore, a middle school teacher in Ohio; and Tanya Diaz, who teaches gifted middle school students in Miami, Florida. Dr. Susan Neimand, Director of the School of Education at Miami Dade College, are serving as the TeachersCount expert advisor to the monthly discussions. TeachersCount invites you to follow and participate in this insightful blog series.
