We Were Meant to be Teachers!

Classroom Management Strategies and other Teacher Worthy Ideas

Why did the Department of Education got established?

#NCLB – #Department of Education – President Carter – Federal Bureaucracy – Andrew Johnson – all of these people and laws have been controversial and, yet necessary, for the population of our country to have capability and wisdom to direct our own affairs.  Should this direction come from the Federal government or each individual state?

I just read an article that gives some insight into how our country has ebbed and flowed from individual state rights to national standards and then back again.  This is a hot button of controversy now and almost 150 years ago, too.

Please give a minute or two to reading this article that provides a summary of our country’s progress since 1867 (yes, since 1867) to get a handle on this challenge for all of us whether we’re home schooling or teaching in public and private schools.
