The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

I read this story yesterday in various news sources around http://huff.to/pOupIE.  Have we set people up by implementing such stringent standards and goals that we have tapped into fear as opposed to pride and professionalism?  Is this what happens when we apply benchmarks that are just out of reach and then refuse to give teachers and students a boost? 

 

We have to figure out a way to make these high standards accessible without lowering them, instead of saying "here is what you need to accomplish so you don't lose everything--go!"
