We're getting down to the wire and early voting is already in full swing across the nation. There is so much at stake in this presidential race from education reform initiatives to school funding, yet thousands of Americans are still undecided heading into the 2016 elections. It's absolutely imperative that educators make well informed decisions at the voting booth this November.

 

KANAAE is proudly non-partisan, does not endorse candidates, or tell members how to vote.  We do, however, urge each and every educator to brush up on the candidates' stances on education at the federal, state, AND local levels before heading to the polls.

Find out what AAE member Jill Cullis says about how teacher-training programs may have failed to prepare teachers for their work in the classroom in our latest edition of Education Matters. Here is a sample of the article….

 

I was raised hearing the phrase, “Those that can, do. Those that can’t, teach. Those that can’t teach, teach teachers.” Although this is a damning statement that greatly offends me as a classroom teacher of 29 years, I have wondered if there is any truth to it - at least the last part of that phrase.
