What Retired Educators Can Do

NEA’s Priority Schools Campaign needs the life skills and expertise of retired educators to help transform public schools. Many of today’s students face tremendous challenges to academic success. The Priority Schools Campaign is the work of NEA members in struggling schools to meet those challenges and close student achievement gaps for all students.

    School districts should engage their teachers in constructing a district wide template for instruction I across discipline. Research over the last six decades show conclusively that there are twenty teaching procedures that have consistently proved successful with more than ninety per cent of students. These procedures simply need to be organized into units for instruction. Teachers can helped to do this. I am willing to offer model templates for district use. I am not willing to provide them for individuals because one bit good instruction in places will not teach students how to learn. Schools are for developing learner, not being filled with facts.
