Question 1: Why do you think that there is a lack of respect for the teaching profession in the United States? Besides summers off. #edChatRI

A1: I think one of the biggest challenges we face are misconceptions. I remember my mother helping me my first year teaching setting up my classroom. She was surprised at how long it took to do so and said she just thought teachers came in and classrooms look like that #edChatRI

@grahamjennifer2 #edChatRI After I changed careers into teaching, it took me a long time to change my family's perception of teaching.

#edChatRI A1: Not everyone had a positive experience with school/teachers in their past - either as a student or as a parent. It becomes easy to generalize based on personal experience. Also, we are public employees, so it is easy to be critical of people who are paid by taxes.

@Blended_Math A1: One reason might be the low bar to entry, both for teachers and administrators… #edChatRI

@Dale_Chu I can't wait to read that! I am going to have my first piece come out on @edu_post this week #edChatRI

Raymond Steinmetz @Blended_Math

@Dale_Chu Also, what do you think we can do to change this? Will simply making it harder to be a teacher make this better? #edChatRI

Dale Chu @Dale_Chu

@Blended_Math Great question. Challenge is that if you make it "harder," it's been found that this often keeps people of color out of the profession. There's a tension in where to set the bar. #edChatRI

Raymond Steinmetz @Blended_Math

@Dale_Chu #edChatRI Maybe more support for those prospective educators is the answer?

Raymond Steinmetz @Blended_Math

@Dale_Chu Couldn't agree more. Sometimes it feels like EDU programs are just cash grabs for colleges since they are required for a license #edChatRI

16/07/2018 07:29:34 WIB
Dale Chu @Dale_Chu

@Blended_Math Yep. Revenues from ed schools are also sometimes used to subsidize other more expensive programs. #edChatRI

Tiffany Colby @colby_colbyt

A1: I think that there is a lack of respect because there is little understanding of what teachers do. I also think we live in a day where blame has to be put somewhere. Life can be negative, and education is a focus for that. I also believe there is a political reason. #edchatri

16/07/2018 07:10:49 WIB
Dale Chu @Dale_Chu

@colby_colbyt I agree, Tiffany. Couple that with the fact that everyone has gone through the K-12 system, and you have a lot of professed experts out there. #edChatRI
