In response to your post, I want to tell you that I agree with almost everything you said, but I think you (once again) lost sight of what it's like to be in the trenches. You and many other educational (motivational) speakers and PD experts would do well to take a one/two year hiatus from the awesome (yes, awesome) stuff you/they are currently doing, and spend some time in an FCAT tested grade in a public school. There are many who could use to spend a year dealing with this head-on; rather than writing or lecturing about it and making teachers feel poorly about the instructional choices they are forced to make every day. It would make you and these other folks even more awesome.
You really want to speak about education...get in the educators trenches!
