I like Tom Hoffman’s brain

Hoffman writes:

If the terms of the argument include “if we simply focus on something and spend more money on it, it will get better,” then can’t we focus on something more direct than tests? Why can we improve testing but not teacher preservice education, for example?

  1. I couldn’t agree more. Preservice teacher education is abysmal right now in most places. Students training to be teachers need to have more in-school experience. If you’re a chemistry major, you spend 10-15 hrs a WEEK in “lab.” Isn’t the lab of education the classroom? If so, then why are most kids spending between 0-50 hrs in the classroom before student teaching?
