You are absolutely right, Diane--but there is a flip side...
Perhaps the reason the profession has such difficulty with teachers and
flexible scheduling is that teachers are left with the belief that both
approaches are compatible: you take my class, give me a break, and I can
still send kids to the resource center whenever I feel like it. Again the
flip side: what teacher would ever accept the teaching of a class and
continual interruptions by other kids wandering in and interrupting and
looking for assistance and using resources etc.? Or aren't we really teaching?
