If you don’t follow the blog of Larry Ferlazzo yet, this is a good moment. Larry just posted a reaction to a new interview with Bill Gates on education by Ezra Klein at Vox . And I agree, it’s depressing with the key problem (as Larry explains):
He then puts the responsibility of student motivation all on teachers, and that the key to teachers learning to be better is through online education.
The conclusion may sound a bit cynical, but quite understandable:
I just hope he finds something else soon that catches his interest so he stop experimenting with the lives of our students, their families, and us teachers…
