Wiki Wednesday #8 - Ten Big Questions For Education

I know it is Thursday, but it has been a busy week.  Better late than never.  At a recent session at Educon 2.2 there was a discussion about "The Ten Big Questions" about education.  From the session at the conference a Wiki was created to address those "Ten Big Questions For Education."  Here is a place for you to answer questions about education and offer your opinion.  If I was not so busy, I probably would have answered some, but I figured sharing with you all would make up for it.

There are some deadlines to the Wiki.  YOU HAVE 5 DAYS TO ANSWER QUESTIONS!!!!  After that, editing, revisions, and finalizing will take place.  You can get more information by looking at the Front Page of the Wiki.  Each question has been provided its own page which helps for organizing information.  These questions are very viable questions for educators to answer.  You can also follow a hashtag for Twitter #10fored to see what other people are saying.  I would provide a list of the questions, but by not, I am enticing you to visit the wiki to see what those questions are and help provide your opinion.  There have been others to visit the wiki who have volunteered to help moderate the pages.  Show your support for their volunteering by visiting and offering your opinion.  

There are many aspects of American History where change started because of a Grassroots movement.  Part of me believes that education is on the verge of being one of those movements because of the lack of involvement of teachers in decisions being made for OUR students.  So it takes us to help move the process forward.  Answering the questions on the wiki would be a great start.
