Abstract

As Reeves has shown, the people and the depth of their commitment make the difference, not the brand-name program. Every educator has stories about the "program of the month," which sometimes conflicts with last month's initiative. Practice really does make perfect, and if we want an initiative to succeed, we have to invest the time and effort into it. All educators have to realize that there really are only twenty-four hours in a day. People do get fatigued and stressed. Everything cannot be a priority. The biggest contribution will be in the area of teacher retention, if districts follow the advice given by Reeves. New teachers need much more support and feedback in the beginning years of teaching. We should not let the enthusiasm and energy of young teachers be crushed by the challenges of facing a class without support. These young teachers are as much our future as our students!
