Do you think you understand what’s wrong with our educational system? Do you think you know how to fix the problems? And lastly, do you think you could win a debate against someone with less experience than you?

Well let’s find out the truth.

This article is going to test your knowledge about education, teaching and how to fix our schools. And the reason I’m writing this article is simply because I’ve been posting on social media for the last three years and too many people assume they have all the answers.

Well, it’s time to put your money where your mouth is.

Section One : Teaching

Schools are legally run by principals, so here’s your chance to prove you know more than your principal.

  2. What should principals be looking for when they observe a teacher?
  3. How does a principal know if students are learning in class?
