1 min


As teachers, we’re bombarded with more and more testing every year, and the test prep takes away from the time we have to actually TEACH.

“I never let my schooling interfere with my education.”

                                    -Mark Twain

The following video by Richard Williams, better known as Prince Ea, he lends depth to the issues of our educational system. He urges the decision makers to rethink the way we teach our children and advocates the theory of multiple intelligences, that every student learns differently. I enjoyed the speech and thought it should be shared with other teachers. What do you think?
