    Good points, After 38 years of teaching elementary school and working with all kinds of teachers I found that the premise hit a nerve. Changes to the system will come slowly. The one thing which I have seen gives me hope. I watched my nephew, Jon Jackson go through teacher preparation and student teaching and realized that what he is learning about teaching today is so very superior to what I was taught 40 years ago that it give me hope. I had to try things out by myself to learn to teach students how to work together in collaborative projects and how to allow them the freedom to choose some of their own paths in learning. His students (or rather the students of his classmates) will have superior teachers. It will take time but eventually it will come. There is no magic powder to change the system in a moment. Change comes slowly.
