What Every Texas Teacher Should Know About Politicians: Lesson #7 – Politicians Do Not Know How To Fix Schools

What Every TX Educator Should Know About Politicians .jpgGreat teachers make great classrooms.

Great principals and great teachers make great schools.

Great superintendents, great principals, and great teachers make great school districts.

Lesson #7 – Politicians do not know how to fix schools. How long have they been at it in Texas? Let’s be generous and say their efforts date back to 1984 with the passage of HB 72. That’s over 30 years … and they’re still at it.

The proof is in the pudding. Politicians don’t know how to fix schools.

Noting politicians do and say can change reality. Again,

  • great teachers make great classrooms;
  • great principals and great teachers make great schools; and
  • great superintendents, great principals, and great teachers make great districts.

Politicians may not know how to fix our schools, but they could do the most basic of things: support their rhetoric and resources our great teachers and staff.
