Diana Ravitch: Students and "Good Teachers"


Students Explain: “What Makes a Good Teacher?” 

by dianerav 
Bill Gates has spent hundreds of millions of dollars in search of an answer to the question: "What makes a good teacher?"
Arne Duncan, building on his record in Chicago, knows what makes a good teacher: It is the teacher who raises test scores, and he has spent billions of dollars to induce every state to agree with him.
What do they look for? Someone who is kind and patient. Someone who helps hem. Someone who encourages them.
There, that was easy, and it didn't cost billions of dollars.
