Janet, Interesting analogy! However isn't a good mom or Dad someone who
sends you on your way and teaches you to be independent?.. Teaching our
students to be independent learners esp. with low literacy ,low educ.
backgrounds students is as much of a feat as it is to teach the rudiments
of literacy. Also program leaders or coordinators may view the program
as their "baby" but as teachers, every ten weeks (or less for some
programs), we get a new batch and there is little time or inclination to
claim ownership for the student's learning.
