So, here is what I'd do in an ideal world of teaching:
- No teacher would teach more than 3 days a week. They would work a full week, but two of the days would be time to create, prepare and organize. The students would have "computer" days or hands-on days where the teacher is not present in the classroom, but the students are still in class. The days the teachers work would be staggered so the students each day would have some classes with teachers and some classes as work times.
- All administrations would have a goal to help teachers with innovative ideas. This would include having grant writers at every level of education to help write grants, and to help find organizations who would be interested in grants. This would encourage thinking of projects that the teachers would be interested and thus naturally increase not just the passion of the teachers, but also the energy. When creativity is increased, energy increases.
- Classrooms would be arranged so the students can move around easily. The goal would be to have students sit for less than 20 minutes at a time. The teachers would work in roat
