Joel Klein, New York City school chancellor: Large global corporations are going to go where the talent is at the price that makes the most sense.
So in places where they’re investing heavily in training up technical expertise the business is going to go there.
[Technical/manufacturing education] is the challenge. Other countries arenot going to wait for us. We’re going to have to step on the gas and really accelerate what we’re doing.
Quote 1: “Teachers are the one and only people who save nations” ~ Mustafa Kemal Atatürk
What is the No. 1 thing you’ve learned about improving public education?
It’s to improve the teachers and to have a teaching force that can really take your kids to an entirely different level. If you focus on effective teaching, that’s the game changer.
Quote 2: The teacher is the key to successful change. It is he who will or will not implement change. Therefore, he must be ready for innovation, including knowledge, attitudes, skills and materials. “The outcome of change almost completely explained by commitment” (Crandall D.P., 1982)
