Following up from yesterday’s post and in the midst of all of the news about decisions being made about education on a national level, I think it is time to start a encouragement revolution! We need to encourage each other and our students to remember that we are more than scores, and we need to encourage the public and the powers-that-be that education is more than scores! We need to talk up the positive things happening in our classrooms and schools that are not tied to test scores.
That said, I am not sure if the hashtag has been used, but let’s make #morethanscores our battle cry. We have to remember it is more than numbers. It is more than what can be counted. It is the hearts and future of the children that we teach. It is the future of our country. It is the future of our world!
Please join me in reminding everyone that it is #morethanscores!
You are awesome! You are amazing! You are more than scores! Never stop teaching, Teacher!
