Superman

Waiting for “Superman” made me sniffly and sad for American children, but I also got kinda upset that they made it seem like teachers are the only cause of poor results. In reality, it’s a mess of things.

If a parent doesn’t know how to support their child’s journey through learning, they won’t be able motivate the child to learn in the same capacity as other parents.  That’s why my lessons are supplemented with “Home Link” letters so that parents can extend the topic of my activities into every day life.

If the community doesn’t support the school or the families, children face the consequences there, too.  That’s why I am passionate about community-based programs.

There are many kinks in this chain, and we shouldn’t only be pointing fingers at the school system.
