  Top Five Priorities for Public Education:

  1. These days, public schools spend an enormous amount of time testing students to discover whether teachers are competent.  What’s not taken into consideration with the state mandated testing is the actual classroom situation.  Are there students with discipline issues?  How much learning time does a teacher give up each day to police a classroom?  The discipline situation in a classroom no doubt has an effect on test results.  Therefore, since a teacher’s career and a students’ advancement to the next grade level is at stake from test results less testing should be required throughout a school year.

  2. So if testing is cut down how is a student’s achievement progress measured?  Curriculum, before high school, should be tailored for each student.  Just like major testing organizations place strategic questions throughout a test to measure certain attributes a certified teacher can do the same.  Therefore, teachers should be certified through middle school grades.

  3. Discipline in public school has become a major distraction from the learning process.  Teachers and school administrators were not hired to do the work of parents who should be in charge of disciplining their children.  A child does not have the right to interrupt the learning process with their discipline issues.  There should be a limit that the school administration has to put up with a student interrupting the learning experience of others.   A process must be developed to put the parent on notice that at some point a constant discipline issue may cause a student to be expelled from the school system; not just passed around through schools disrupting other schools.
     
  4. Acknowledging a lack of certified teachers, there are those who desire to teach subjects in which they have obtained a college degree.  For example, one who has a degree in mathematics should be allowed to teach math in high school since they have a certain competence in that subject without being required to obtain education certification.

  5. Breaking high school into a two track system would benefit all students.  A one size fits all curriculum in high school does not benefit those who either do not desire to attend college or for financial reasons cannot attend college.  High schools should have a college prep track and technical track to prepare a student for the workforce and provide employment.   The technical track for high school should include employers willing to train a student for a job.  That employer could be given tax benefits for participation in providing jobs to those in the technical high school track.
