Why the right hates American history Sure, the war on education helps Republican lawmakers destroy unions and slash government spending, but it’s our history of progressive change that makes Conservatives hate accurate depictions of our past. Just think about Social Security, The New Deal, freeing the slaves, or child labor laws… all represent great turning points in our nation that progressives made possible. The fact is, our entire history – from our revolution to healthcare reform – is filled with progressive accomplishments, and it’s hard to sell the Conservative brand to people who know that history. Many of the today’s biggest political issues, like our privacy rights, would not even be up for debate today had it not been for the attack on education.

Most of us are winding our ways back to the classroom now after a sunny summer. I’ve prepared a lesson this week on motivation as it’s something I’m struggling to find at the moment! For some of us the return to work will be exciting, for others there’ll be a sinking feeling as they put their holidays behind them and try and muster the motivation they need to get back into the swing of things. However, motivation doesn’t come automatically. For many of us we need a reason to do something, and if in doubt we ‘think of the money’. But is that really the most important factor?

Wrong Answer to the Wrong Question Michael Duffy Teacher education matters. Many future teachers enter preparation programs with deep-seated and unquestioned ideas about teaching and learning. At a moment when the children in our classrooms reflect the growing diversity of our population but our teaching force remains essentially white and middle class, we need our schools of education to ask pre-service teachers to wrestle with identity and race, to explore the historical/cultural contexts of school, and to frame teaching as the political work that it is. After all, teaching always asks us to imagine the kind of society we want to live in.
