Education - What a tenured educator really is


Sometimes I read something in the Herald and it literally makes my head spin. Yesterday, a letter to the editor was posted by a GSU Education Ph.D. I'm stunned, completely stunned, that someone of this level would not know the definition of a "tenured educator"!

An Educator's Perspective


I am posting the following blog, which I did not write. It was written by a top educator in the state of Georgia with thirty years in academia under his belt.

Education - The Silent Vein of Destruction


My title for this blog may sound a bit dramatic. But I don't really think it is. Many years ago, a science teacher I had in 5th grade gave us a great analogy. He said if you heated up a frying pan until it was very hot and then placed a toad in the frying pan, the toad would immediately jump out of the pan.
