Read Teaching Can Be a Profession by Joel Klein which was published in USA Today on November 17, 2014.
Start your blog post with a list of all problems and their associated “solutions” ( or changes recommended without an identification of a “problem”) that need addressing as identified by Mr. Klein or attributed to Albert Shanker.
Take each individual item in your list. In a paragraph, indicate whether you agree or disagree that the “problem” identified (if any) is really a problem and whether or not you agree with the proposed “solution.” In all cases, defend your position with clear arguments and facts. Identify opinions as such.
Write a conclusion to your post that is appropriate.
NOTE: This assignment is a change to the assignment previously posted. If you have already completed the assignment as original provided on November 16, 2014 and have posted your work on your blog, you are exempt from this version of the Blog Post 14 assignment. Nevertheless, I suggest you do it since these issues are vital to discuss.
