Awesome TED talk

I think this is the best TED talk I've ever heard.  This teacher, Joshua Katz, nailed the problems in education and how we got here.  Follow the money.  Amen, brother.  Professional teachers are by and large amazing and are working miracles despite the toxic education culture.  Preach it!  We need to innovate to create viable alternative options for our non-college track students.  Absolutely.

Although the video is 17 minutes long and most of us have an attention span (or our children give us) five minutes, I really think this is worth watching from beginning to end.



  1. I think Joshua had some very good points.
    oh and you were right, the video was only playing 5 minutes when I was interrupted by my son. I had to laugh because you called it!
    Thanks for the link. :)

  2. Amy--you were lucky to get five minutes!
