Education is "LEARNING" supported by teaching.
Common concerns can be found and solutions discussed that support local concerns. Learners can benefit with more shared solutions that benefit more learners. Solutions can focus on learners and not limited to teaching concerns(like jobs).
By sharing discussions at different levels we can reduce duplication and costs
We must find solutions that can benefit all immediately and that are not limited to on classroom, school or community.
We must find a way to allow DeptEd to support local control. This makes it more cost effective to compare with other competing nations with recommendations that schools support employer concerns such as understanding productivity. We must also teach interpersonal communication skills to reduce domestic and other disputes and possibly prevent wars.
We must recognize common concerns and make recommendations but be flexible enough to allow local implementation.
We must recognize the teacher conflict of interest that limits education improvements with teacher concerns such as technology reducing jobs.
The national government has no constitutional authority to have any involvement in the public schools. It is the responsibility of the parents to educate their children and if they elect to do so via a public school system that system must be under their control. I do not believe it is coincidence that the public schools have deteriorated as the level of federal involvement has increased. Public schools used to be able to teach kids to land men on the moon. Now they cannot teach them to add.
