Teacher Spotlight!

Miss Brave is fighting the good fight with grammar and punctuation, and posted the awesomest idea ever:

What if teaching were a reality show? And every week, teachers competed to see who could teach the most compelling, engaging, enriching lesson? And the teachers had bitchfights over things like whether to go with Teaching With Love and Logic or the assertive discipline approach? And they were coached by surprise celebrity guests like Harry Wong and Rafe Esquith? And every week someone got voted off by a panel of judges like Jonathan Kozol and Deborah Meier? And in the end the winner was crowned America's Next Top Educator and rose to fame throughout the nation?

I say this is too, too cool. Let's spread the word so someone rich will sponsor it! (Hey, Bloomberg!)

Thanks for the shout out! Honestly, when shows like Survivor and Project Runway first started airing, I thought the concept was a little ridiculous, so now it's like: Well, why NOT a teaching reality show?! I think watching teachers teach would be a heck of a lot more interesting than watching those American Idol kids film another Ford commercial.
