The personal learning network for educators
Hello everyone what in your mind is the "Glow" (something positive) in Canadian Education? What is the "Grow" (opportunity for change) in Canadian Education?
Glow in Canada: Much greater level of teacher autonomy and the resulting professionalism.
Grow in Canada: Funding and equity issues in Aboriginal education, as well as our continued movement toward a "one size fits all" education system in some parts of our country.
Are you in favour of a "one size fits all"? educational system? Do you mean through nationalizing curriculum (remember that movement?) or through inclusion?
The teacher autonomy is awesome! I wonder if it is because of how teachers are trained in Canada. Is it because of our training that the system has more faith in us?
