No no, I am not becoming an establishment-hating radical after one week of courses. My "Inquiries"-related ennui is not making me regret my decision to enroll in a teacher certification program rather than going the emergency certification route.
I just question the value of certain curricular requirements toward achieving that goal.
BTW, it's not just my program; all New York State teaching candidates must take "college coursework" in "foundations in education."
And BTW again, maybe my rebellious spirit is the result of the undemocratic way in which the state tells me I must learn how to be a teacher. Paulo Freire meets the Gadfly!
