Pamela's posting on 'Trust me... I'm a teacher':

http://pamelasnow.blogspot.com.au

It's astonishing and deeply concerning to see a teacher argue such an anti-intellectual corner. No profession, whether teaching, medicine, engineering, law, or aviation should be allowed to "do its own thing" unfettered by scrutiny from interested stakeholders, taxpayers, friendly critics and/or researchers. That a teacher would publicly assert such a position affirms some of the worst stereotypes about education operating in an evidence-vacuum. It also leaves no obvious room for finding common ground characterised by genuine curiosity about what works best in the classroom, and under what circumstances. Academics whose research has a focus on education (of whom I am one) are typically motivated not only by intellectual rigour, but also by a sense of social justice that compels to action.


If evidence matters when we are treating cancer, building bridges, or flying aeroplanes, why doesn't it matter when we're educating the next generation of doctors, engineers and pilots?

I would like to draw attention to Professor Pamela Snow's excellent response to a post by Professor Robyn Ewing and the best way to do this is to provide a link to the thread started by Susan Godsland here:

I really can't recommend Pamela's blog highly enough.

Pamela Snow very cleverly writes:

Dyslexia, we need to talk. It's not me, it's you.
