I was watching the movie Elf with my kids the other day. I absolutely love that movie. It is so funny. Every time I watch the part where Buddy the Elf is working in Santa’s Workshop it makes me think about education. Take a minute to watch this clip:
I think this applies to students, teachers and even Principals.
Students – Do all students learn the same way? Need to know the same information at the same rate?
Teachers – Are we measuring teachers based on right criteria or have we created another one size fits all system?
Principals – Do you have quotas for walkthroughs? Test Scores? Evaluations? Ever feel like Buddy?
What do you think?
