Mark,
So do we educational leaders simply respond to what Joe Public wants or is it our responsibility to do what is educationally sound and best practice? I am firmly in the second camp.
In New Zealand at the moment we are nearing the end of our academic year and are making class placement decisions for 2009. The decisions we make for class placements are based on our informed professional judgment, and are certainly not a popularity contest. There are any number of other examples I could quote as well.
We also are currently facing the introduction of National Testing for the primary (elementary) grades for the first time. Interesting times indeed .... :-)
cheers
Greg
