Note: This is a cross-post from my own blog Education Rethink.
I asked Joel what he thought of school and he said, “I love it. We get to play. We get to learn math. I’m practicing reading real books.”
“What do you mean real books?”
“It’s like school finally started. We spent all of last week taking tests.”
“Crazy,” I tell him.
“Yeah. And they even test you on how fast you read instead of how good you are at reading,” he shakes his head.
I shake my head with him.
If you’re interested, I just released A Sustainable Start: A Realistic Look at the First Year of Teaching.
