Solving Major Problems in Education

There are numerous problems in education. We are using outdated methods in today’s school climate. With this strategy, we will never get ahead nor will we meet the needs of our current students.

Luckily, there are educators willing to solve these problems. Even though some districts and states might have unique obstacles that require unique solutions, many of the underlying problems in education exist across the nation. Leave it to the educators in the trenches to tell decision makers what the solutions are and how to best execute them so that both teachers and students succeed.

The Solution Leader

A powerhouse in the educational field, named Dr. Cathy Owens Oliver, put together a monstrous team of educators to solve these nationwide problems in our schools. Her diverse background of being a senior leader in 3 national education organizations, supervising 300 staff and coaching leaders in 46 states has given her knowledge and experience to successfully solve problems in education. However, she knew she couldn’t do it alone.

As a result, Dr. Cathy hand picked expert educators to write a chapter in a collaborative book called “Educators Who Know What to Do- Experts in Education.” This book will help solve the biggest problems in education right now.

Take a peek: “Teacher leaders are the most valuable players on the education field, and the most overlooked when it’s time to write the playbook. But after years of watching how the game has been played, master teachers in this book have come off the sidelines. Their strategic ideas, solutions, and voices must be heard. It’s time to put school problems in the hands of expert educators who know what to do. Make room at the table, you’re about to hear from the best.” 


The Collective Solution

Each chapter addresses a major problem in education by sharing specific, actionable strategies to eliminate them. Some ideas include:

  • College scholarships for kindergarteners
  • Restorative practices that get results
  • Mental wellness
  • Eliminating the teacher shortage
  • Eradicating complacency
  • Narrowing the racial divide

… and so much more!

To share my solutions to a major problem in education alongside other elite educators  discussing twenty other riveting solutions is an opportunity of a lifetime.
