Teachers are one of the most influential entities of students especially in their childhood. But if the teachers are not able to do their part well in shaping the students, the fate of the society will be affected.
It is very vital that the students’ development are moulded and guided well by the appropriate persons such as the teachers. However, if the teachers fail to portray their role appropriately, then the fate of the students are put at risk.
What becomes of a man can be traced from how well (or poor) his educators portrayed their role during his formative years. Therefore, a little mistake in the moulding and shaping process will create a significant impact on the future of the students.
There is a significant number of public education issues in the United States to-date. One of the reasons why such quality is worsening is the continued attack against the competency and capability of educators in the academic institution.
The reputation of the teachers in the public schools across the country is getting more tainted. That is why the quality of public education has gone unimpressive through the years.
Serious issues haunt the quality of public education in the United States. Unprofessional conduct of educators in public school classrooms is one of the biggest issues in education today.
Almost over a decade back, public school teachers were found to have “betrayed” and deceived the students and their parents through the former’s unprofessional conduct in school, based on research. There were incidents of non-compliance with the standard procedures of the school. It was found out that students were allowed to bring home their tests as home-works; students could take tests even beyond the allotted time; students who were considered poor in academics were discouraged from taking tests; students were given grades higher than their actual performance; and lastly, the teachers were not reprimanded for such misconduct and policy violations.
Many investigations have been conducted on the actual performance of educators inside the classroom. Many years have passed and infamous issues continue to assault the reputation of teachers. There is no specific direction as to where public education is heading to insofar as meeting academic expectations. Teaching malpractice pertains to the inconsistency of teachers in gauging the students’ degree of competency and understanding through administering the appropriate and prescribed testing method, according to investigative studies in the past.
The conduct of teachers is in question mainly because of the results of numerous investigative studies conducted in the past. Misconduct pertains to the inability of teachers to post challenging tasks on students to gauge the degree of learning and competency such as taking tests honestly and giving grades objectively.
It is imperative that the issue on professional misconduct be resolved right away to impede the deterioration of the education quality of public schools across the country. School administrators should adopt a learning management system, or LMS. The school can be aided with the LMS as it is software for tracking, managing administrative and academic requirements. The LMS will allow centralization and standardization of all academic-related materials released to the students such as test questionnaires, manuals, and others. The system will encourage and train students to appreciate and maximize the benefits of virtual learning, at the same time, will allow educators to practice virtual management. As such, compliance with the school’s standards is guaranteed among teachers, parents, students and the administrators. A performance management feature in the LMS software will ensure that all faculty members are doing—or teaching—as prescribed. Hence, the parents will have peace of mind with respect to the credibility and competence of the teachers who handle their children at the virtual school. Lastly, the LMS is capable of quantifying the performance of the students based on inputs, thus assuring the parents of the actual grades of students, without biases or anything else.
The issue on unprofessional conduct of educators must be terminated right away as it contributes to the deterioration of public education quality. A learning management system is the best solution to the degenerating dilemma. Through an LMS, schools are able to monitor and manage the academic training and education. The performance of teachers and students can be monitored through the LMS software. The online nature of LMS allows the school administrators to standardize all information manuals and training materials. The standardization guarantees parents and students of values compliance. Students can already study and prepare for upcoming lessons since course outlines are made available online. The performance of teachers and students can also be monitored through the performance management feature of the LMS. For the grading system, the parents will no longer worry about incredible grades because the LMS can quantify the actual performance of each student according to work inputs.
Teaching malpractice is not in any way acceptable, so it has to stop. A learning management system, also known as LMS, is the best answer to cure this worsening illness in education. Performance, training and education management can be handled by the LMS software. The centralization of materials and information source through the web will help the school manage both academic and non-academic undertakings efficiently. Training manuals, syllabus, curriculum outline, test questionnaires can be made official and standard for the benefit of the students, parents, teachers, and the school administration. Since the LMS has a performance management feature, the actions, behaviour and accomplishments of both teachers and students are monitored. Lastly, the actual performance of each student can me measured since the LMS has such capability, thus ensuring accurate grading system.
The quality of public education in the United States can be improved by resolving unprofessional conduct of educators through a learning management system.
The problem on profession malpractice in public education can be deleted through a learning management system.
Establishing the credibility of educators and the education system should be the priority of the public schools to regain the tainted reputation of the teaching profession in the United States.
