Blog5  A First Person Narrative  (250 thoughtful words)

Based on your readings of Taubman (2009) chapters 6 and 7 and your lived experiences as a classroom teacher, educator or coach, please respond in the first person "I" to the questions Taubman asks at the conclusion of chapter 5 Audit Culture.  Taubman (2009, p. 126) writes:

"But the questions remain: How did [you] let [yourself]get to this place?  How did [you] become complicit, perhaps unwittingly, in [your] own decline? How did [you] succumb to the belief that the business gurus and "flat world" pundits know more about education than [you] do, or to the view that the product management strategies, accounting protocols, and bottom line values of corporations can address the educational needs of teachers and students?  How did [you] allow [yourself] to be seduced into being a "generic teacher" whose academic authority is replaced by management control?"
