Hello, everyone!👋 There's a certain post that's been making waves on social media following the recent, heart-wrenching events 🌊💔. It was a radio host questioning why, in the world of law enforcement, there seems to be a resistance to acknowledge that not all officers are beyond reproach 🚔. This got my wheels turning about parallels in the teaching profession 🍎.
This week, I dove into a Facebook group focused on a freshly launched leveled literacy program, courtesy of a famous pair in the literacy arena 👥📖. A glaring revelation? A staggering number of people, mainly teachers, seemed to have a severe misunderstanding of dyslexia 🤯. These are the very individuals blocking real learning for our young minds. I felt a strong urge to speak up, and so I did.
Despite sharing thoughts and asking important questions, the response I got was less than ideal 🙅♀️. The group's moderator voiced their complaints publicly and rather childishly. The lack of substantial responses, peppered with hints of ignorance, was discouraging.
