The NY Times is having a conference next month on technology in education. I count 36 speakers. Based on their resumes posted on line, a mere five have any experience as a K-12 teacher. Only one appears to currently teach.
I know this is primarily a business networking function. But isn't it nice to imagine a day when the country's most prestigious newspaper gathers 36 distinguished teachers together for an audience full of corporate executives and politicians?
Wouldn't it be nice to think someone actually cared enough to listen to us?
