late night thoughts

because i excel at procrastination, i dove into the world of edublogs and have just resurfaced. one consistent topic, at least with the newbies, is the question of student accountability and the hope for a changing tide in Education. i don't know enough about the history or culture of education in the usa, but i do know that veteran teachers in my high school repeatedly shake their heads and wonder how "things got to be this way." one blogger wrote that he is waiting for the pendulum to swing. i find that i'm waiting for that a lot these days. i guess i'm questioning the length of the trajectory and praying that there is actually a pendulum. don't get me wrong, i love teaching. but i don't love the system, which is corrupted by the weight of enabling and finger pointing.
