A recent cover story in Time magazine (Nov. 3) blames teachers, right before a major election, for problems in America's schools. As Terri Thorkildsen, past-president of the Division of Educational Psychology (Division 15) of the American Psychological Association said, "The blaming teachers formula is so over-used that people do not seem to hear a political message anymore, but it ultimately demeans the very people we trust with our children." The following link is to an opinion essay, written by University of Arizona Prof. Emeritus Tom Good on behalf of Division 15, which sends a strong message of support for teachers, our first responders for many education situations. Good points out the many mistakes and incorrect assumptions in the Time article.
