There's a lot going on. Technology, grading, policy, planning, DeVos, grading, iPads, conferences, grading, Trump, classroom management, grading, curriculum, special needs, and did we say grading? - we get it. OnEducation is here to help. We have honest conversations about teachers, teaching, and everything in between. It's time we talked, and we're hoping you will join the conversation.
Meet Mike and Glen. We're educators. We've been everywhere you've been. Mike is Canadian, Glen is American. We cover all the bases. This isn't your normal teacher conversation, this is the staff room (the good ones). We are real, honest (sometimes brutally) and we are hoping, informative. We don't dodge the "tough stuff". Join us as we talk to world-class educators, and tell you what's new.
This is OnEducation. We're glad you're here. Let's roll.
In this episode Mike and Glen debate the reasons why US math & reading scores haven’t changed much in a decade. We’ll talk about Powerschool’s purchase of Schoology. And our guest this week is speaker and author Angela Maiers.
