OPIE GETS LOW GRADE IN MATH
As you probably know, I am a huge fan of the Andy Griffith show. Today I was watching Season 5, Episode 30 on Netflix and I have the idea that every teacher in America should be trained watching this show and tracking what they see using the Brainsarefun Method of Teacher Evaluation.
It would be a revelation. As fabulous a teacher as Helen Krump was supposed to be, she was petty, discouraging, belittling and made kids guess at the answers until they couldn't possibly succeed. The classrooms depicted on both Andy Griffith and Leave it to Beaver are "Horrifying" because they are such an accurate representation of what happens to too many kids.
Thanks for all you do to flood kids with reading, math and study-skill success.
Working together we really do make a difference,
