School Culture and Great Teachers

17 May

Post image for Choosing a Business School With the Best Culture

The best education systems understand that school culture matters more than teacher quality. This is something that come up in all meetings be they online or not.

No school or school system has ever become great without great teachers, but what can an excellent teacher do about a child who needs glasses, has cavities or is hungry? To say that teacher or school quality is the most important variable in education is at best naive.

Ultimately, great teachers make great schools, but great teachers can’t do it alone – they require the support of an equitable society. They need the support of parents and school leaders. If we are not careful, we risk misinterpreting the scores, and instead of waging war on poverty and inequity, we end up waging war on teachers and schools. I must remember that as I approach parent teacher night next week as a parent. Perhaps that a topic for next time. Teacher as Parents.
