As parents of students currently in school, my wife and I are often amazed at just how often one of our two boys has a substitute. We’re probably (hopefully!) exaggerating, but it seems to us that just about every day there’s at least one period that has a sub – sometimes a great sub, but often someone who really has no plan and is apt to put a movie on for them.
We’re talking about grades 9 & 10 here – to me, every period is time that should be spent learning, and watching movies without any teaching context? Not so much, for me.
Anyhow – this weekend I came across the following article – it’s a quick read, and the sentiments we have in this house are echoed.
I like to see my own sentiments echoed. 🙂
