Society demands evidence, especially in education. Are we hearing the truth? Are schools checking the validity of data? I doubt it. Data is driving curriculum, teaching methods, and technology integration options. Are these choices actually helping kids learn better? Without reliable information, we may never know.
If you are hoping to contribute to the ocean of information to improve education I urge you, be honest. Be honest about what you know and don’t know, and the truth about the experiences you share. My success; my students’ success depends on your truth.
