This was in today's WSJ. I'd especially love to hear from teachers who have graduated in the past 5-10 years. Was your training similar to what is described in this article?


"Worldview building and ideological manipulation take precedence over teacher preparation."

"The National Council on Teacher Quality reviewed how many schools of education taught prospective elementary-school teachers the “science of reading”—decades-old research that confirms the necessity of phonics, spelling and vocabulary instruction. Only 15% of schools emphasized these elements in 2006, which increased to 22% according to a survey from 2019."

"Students are the obvious losers. But teachers suffer, too. It’s almost a rite of passage that every teacher must go through hell his first year. Partly this is a function of getting used to the job, but it’s also a reflection of how ill-prepared they are by their training to stand in front of a classroom full of students."

Dispense with the education of the schools, and have good masters at home instead.

We’ve come full circle since pre-industrial times.
