Apart from this blog here, I also have an active profile on Medium. There you find selected posts from this blog and also some more personal stories or stories not related to education. Today, I was surfing over there and found this great story from Gaby Diaz, who shares some insights into a failing education system in Texas.

Reading this story sparked some reflections, which I want to share.

Schools lack teachers. Our education system has failed.
Teachers are leaving the profession in droves. A true education revolution is needed to fix that.

My Name is Alexander Benesch, but it is okay to just address me with Alex. I am from Germany but have spent more than half of my life in Denmark, where I have been teaching special needs students, among many other activities. I write about education and teaching, provide tips for teachers and lesson materials, and blog about educational technology. I also offer my tutoring services via the blog. I am passionate about teaching and I have many thoughts and opinions about pedagogy, education, and social issues. I believe that our education systems need a major revolution to be fit for the challenges that humanity faces in the 21st century. That is why I decided to write about it.
