Good schools have good teachers and the best schools have excellent teachers.
At TheBestSchools.org, we highlight some of the outstanding teachers active today and in the past (such as Jaime Escalante, pictured to the left — more on him here).
So much of education these days focuses on process — are proper procedures being followed at the proper time? And even when the focus is on “learning outcomes,” actual instruction can consist of nothing more than preparing students to pass particular tests or satisfy certain artificial requirements.
Some teachers transcend these artificial constraints, helping students to make quantum leaps in learning and excel way beyond anything they would have thought or imagined.
At TheBestSchools.org we want to alert our readers to such teachers.
