I'd class this as contemporary teaching theory, with no evidence or competent facts. I'd guess it's more likely something like focus, interest, or student motivation. All this can be addressed online as well as in a classroom.This comes directly from my department chair, talking to those of us teaching a completely asynchronous class, on the extra attention we will need to spend on student involvement to keep them invested in the class. SWIC has been doing asynchronous classes for a few years now. It has nothing to do with school choice, nor vouchers, nor the teacher's union.
I believe there are large numbers of teachers with issues like mine...... Union leadership, and educational leadership, has been hijacked by political activists, people who don't think American values are good.It is so you, that the groups that your don't trust regarding good teaching practices are precisely the groups representing actual teachers.
You prefer the indoctrination we got as children?
I saw the indoctrination in grade school in weekly student pamphlets about the UN and other things I saw it in textbooks as well. I really disliked those textbooks in general. I knew I was being fed ****.
But my teachers ignored it the same way I did, for the most part. Well, maybe except for Mr.Feller who ran the Model UN Club in my high school. He had that deer in the headlights stare, maybe a fish outta water. Maybe dead. Anyway, he never seemed credible to me. He got angry at people who disagreed way too easily.
Intellectual intolerance is a sure sign of a dead end in your learning experience.
