Education blogger Steve Moore shares his response to this quote:
“Good teachers are costly, but bad teachers cost more.” Bob Talbert
After reading this quote, I felt a jab not because I see myself as a defender
of “bad” teachers, but of language and rhetoric. I think the way we frame our discussions about teaching, education, and success in those areas is directly related to what we will see come to pass.
Any time I hear a person debase or celebrate teachers, I try to find a way to understand what exactly they are speaking to. The “good” as well as “bad” is deceiving.
