Applying a business model to the growth and development of children has hurt and demoralized education

Competition does not work because the true stakeholders (children, families, society) profit from the emotional and psychological work done in the classroom, when done well...
... Yet 600B is spent in the US on #ed and thousand of companies make heavy profits.

While at the same time, teachers must find extra income to make ends meet, some live barely above the poverty line, and teacher turn over costs 1B a year

Meaning a highly specialized...
... workforce, that can make huge changes and gains in the lives of the 50mil children that are in the public education system, that have the emotional and psychological experience to support the growth of a nation

gets passed over for the TRUE work that they perform...
... because a district wanted more TV’s and a tablet


When WE being to agree that the work teachers do in the classroom is lay the emotional and psychological foundation, infrastructure, of our society...
... and we support teachers with the emotional and psychological training that they need, to help students...

And give our teachers a comparable income with the work that is done in the classroom, we will no longer loose the 1B in institutional memory and experience...
... and our students, our society, and the business community will win

Business will have emotionally and psychologically sound person, who is creative, engaging, and comfortable in his/her skin, with the confidence to problem solve and collaborate, and lead a company to thrive.
