Everyone should read this blog post. Thank you for the “no thank you.”
This is one of the more wonderful ways of dealing with the negative viewpoint of teachers currently in existence. I love the way in which you have framed everything as a choice to accept or reject this narrative.
The “no thank you” I most want to hear, though, is the one that we can say to those who would deny the voice of those closest to kids, the teachers. Those that would seek to silence your words or deny their value I would say, “No thank you.”
This is the narrative I want. This is the voice that I want to hear. Always.
