Art History Major, Isabel Gray, Quoted in NPR Arts Education Story

Isabel was featured in “Where Have All the Teachers Gone” on March 3, 2015, on the issue of declining numbers of young professionals entering the teaching profession.  Isabel shared that her zeal for teaching K-12 students is undermined by the American education system’s focus on test scores.  She expressed, “You want to find the right balance between being a really good teacher and still meeting those standards and not just teaching toward the test, really retaining that material and not just being taught, you know, testing strategies. And it’s hard to find that balance.  And there’s just so much that’s changing” in education.
