Transparency in Teaching

Real Teachers - Straight Talk

What is transparency in teaching

Public education sucks and needs a significant overhaul. Want change? So do we! We are current classroom teachers with almost 80 years of combined experience. We explain the effects of decisions made by the people who “think” they know what’s best for education and discuss all sides of current classroom controversies and what we know would work better. It’s a good dose of reality with a few laughs thrown in. Transparency in Teaching lets you see through the classroom door, so you know what’s really happening in today’s classrooms. Pull up a chair and join in the conversation.
