I agree completely! And it's not just teachers that have these differences of opinions and think they're completely right. It's in all of the classroom management literature as well. Which made it much harder today to try to buy a CM book I haven't read yet at B&N, because I realized of the books I did read there was just so much varied advice. There's no one single answer to classroom management. I've since figured out that you do what works for you. Every teacher has a different situation and different kids and haven't experienced enough other types of classrooms to be able to say definitively that what someone else does in their classroom is wrong. That's not to say that we shouldn't share what works for us in our classrooms, because we can share good ideas and things others might want to try, but we should probably stop being judgmental. Lol! I won't go so far as to say they don't exist, but I will say that a lot of teachers who say they have such a classroom are lying through their teeth.
