My name is Dr. Zach Groshell and Education Rickshaw is my blog. Here’s a quick guide:

I began teaching in U.S. public schools, but quickly transitioned to overseas teaching.

Along the way, I started to get more interested in the science of learning and instruction.

A lot of what I read started to make me question whether the prevailing wisdom of education was the way to go.

After a lot of consideration of the evidence, I now emphasize the importance of a coherent, knowledge-based curriculum and interactive, explicit instruction.

Our children also benefit from high expectations and classroom management.

The more I read, the more I figured it would be a good idea to get a PhD, which I completed in 2022.

My blogging and social media presence have led to a lot of guest appearances on podcasts.

I eventually created my own podcast around the progressive vs. traditional debates in education.

And contributed the assessment and feedback section of a new book.
