I’ve posted this entry over at EdWeek on the Teaching Ahead blog series about the current debate over whether schools should be preparing all students for college, or should some be prepared to go directly into the workplace, or to other training?
My take as a parent and teacher, learning from the past and looking to the future, is that is a false choice. It’s not either/or—for a number of reasons. Come join me and some of our Collaboratory colleagues for the discussion this week.
UPDATE: The discussion over at Teaching Ahead is heating up! Come share your thoughts.
