There is so much debate in education, whether we are talking about public education, private education, inequalities in what is offered to children, or high stakes testing, teacher and administrator evaluation and property tax caps. Some adults have a tendency to focus on the negative side of debates and sometimes they vilify people in the process. Finding Common Ground is not about vilifying people but searching for a common understanding.
As educators we have a positive or negative impact on our students and it is up to us to decide which one is the way we wish to be remembered. Three days a week, Peter explores issues that cover the emotional and social issues children face. He has focused on high-stakes testing, teacher and administrator evaluation, safeguarding LGBTQ students, drop-out prevention, school discipline, reaching students who are at-risk, using social networking for students and educators and other topics that effect educators, students and parents every day.
Finding Common Ground is read nationally and internationally. He enjoys hearing from readers, so if you like/dislike something you read on Finding Common Ground, contact him. Hopefully we can all find some common ground together.
