Are Colleges of Education Helping?

Ask this question of your state funded Colleges of Education: If professors’ evaluations are based on publishing in learned journals and winning grants to fund research, what percentage of their time is left to dedicate to meaningful work to improve the quality of education at our local schools. With thirty-plus years of experience with the local college and the school district, I have seen little interaction between the two to actually improve the district, one consistently failing to provide all students with a hight quality education. Is COE emphasis on research and grants good for the state of education?

What does intense work in the schools without grants or eye on research papers earn a professor?
