New report on teacher’s ideas to improve student learning
The College Board believes in the power and commitment of teachers. In support of their work, the College Board Advocacy & Policy Center has released the seventh installment in our Teachers Are the Center of Education/Teacher Voices series, Teachers Talk about Some of the Big Problems They Face in the Classroom and How These Impede Student Learning.
This report, written by practicing classroom teachers, provides an overview of some of the issues that impede student learning in the classroom. These issues include class size, family support and involvement, absenteeism, plagiarism, and lack of resources. The report is based on interviews by teachers with their teaching colleagues.
This report adds to the literature about school reform. Without the active voices of teachers to help guide the conversation, we cannot hope to improve student learning.
