However, it wasn’t completely clear to me exactly how the job was different. It is now becoming more and more clear. However, not everything is changing.
Let’s start with the vestiges of what was. Our schedule is still derived from the farming schedule. In fact, lawmakers in Michigan like the schedule so much that we are barred by law from having students return to school before Labor Day. That is one example of what was.
Those same lawmakers also passed a law that every student must have an “on-line” experience. New schedule, meet the old schedule.
Teachers are being asked to do more and more. Yet we don’t recognize that. We don’t honor that. We don’t applaud that.
How has the job changed?
More to come.
