This is a site to discuss better education for all, so here is a discussion about teaching.
Carol Corbett Burris objected to its narrow pedagogy. I objected to the very fact that it is a “graduate school of education” since its faculty includes no scholars, it teaches nothing other than classroom management and data analysis, it offers no courses in the foundations of education, nothing about cognitive psychology or sociology or economics or history, just one way to teach. To my way of thinking, Relay is a teaching program, not a graduate school of education. I would like to hear someone from Relay explain on what grounds they call themselves a “graduate school of education” without scholars or a curriculum. They are more akin to a trade school for charter teachers.
But I digress.
Perhaps you will enjoy the discussion.
