Education system in Ohio as it is now is broken, let's at least try something different.
Let's try something completely different. Hold children accountable. Bring true discipline back to the class room, remove discipline problems and do away with inclusion. Teach to the higher denominator instead of the lowest. Reward success, not mediocrity. Make parental involvement not just a priority, but mandatory.
Hmmm... That doesn't sound new and different, Sounds like the way we used to do things when our schools were more successful. Teachers had some level of tenure back then, too. Instead of changing something that has been a relative constant, why not look at what variables have changed?
