Professor Provides Shelves of Food for Any Student Who Needs It

Professor Provides Shelves of Food for Any Student Who Needs It | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
Grace Nguyen, a student at UT Dallas, recently shared an email from her professor, Dr. Gayle Schwark, that will make you believe in the power of good teachers. Gayle emailed all her students to let them know she would have shelves of food available in her office for any student that needs some nourishment — for any reason, at any time, and they don't even have to be her student.

Teachers and professors don't get enough credit for the impact they have on their students. This small, touching move by one professor has the capacity to change kids' lives! Grace's tweet blew up as it demonstrated how much of a difference this professor' seemingly small gesture could make.  
Al Cannistras insight:

not a new story, but one i have heard many times before - at first, i was shocked but no more... we feed the world, and those who have come to expect it.... but our kids struggle with hunger?

The New Teacher Project says low expectations hurt kids

The New Teacher Project says low expectations hurt kids | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
For many kids, what they learn in high school isn’t preparing them for success in college or in their career. A new report delves into how our education system is letting them down.
Al Cannistras insight:

It should be obvious we have a problem, however because educators are such a large voting and economic block, the necessary conversation does not happen. IMO, it is not necessarily the teachers who are to blame. A long stern look at the admins and the programs they dictate may have surprising consequences. Constantly pouring money into education is not a solution. Time to look into it…

Teacher Fails Students Who Won't Do Work and Her School District Fired Her

Teacher Fails Students Who Won't Do Work and Her School District Fired Her | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
Diane Tirado was told she had to give students at least a 50% grade, even if they handed in zero work. She didn't and now she's lost her job.
Al Cannistras insight:

MAKA – in a DIFFERENT WAY

.

I have long been a critic of our education system and it’s OVERPAID beneficiaries.

.

For a long time, the answer has been “throw more money at it” – and it will improve. The admins play upon parents who want better for their children – and then do not deliver.

.

This teacher did the RIGHT thing – and got fired.

.

If parents REALLY love their children – they will get involved. It is time for change – from kindergarten through higher education. A makeover is long over due.
