Educators often rely on best practices to inform their own practice. However, the phenomenon of the education pendulum can make best practice appear cyclical. In this assignment, you will revise your earlier paper on the education pendulum and critique and assess current best practices in education.

Present a revised version (1,750-2,050 words total) of the paper “The Education Pendulum” that makes improvements in the caliber of the writing and incorporates instructor feedback regarding content and writing. Include the following in your submission:
- A reflection (250-300 words) that provides a bulleted list of the changes you made to the paper and discusses your revision process including how you incorporated your instructor’s feedback into the revised version. Similar to an abstract, this section will receive its own page following the title page and preceding the introduction to the paper.
- The revised paper that incorporates instructor feedback; clarifies the thesis statement and solidifies supporting arguments; edits for grammar, spelling, and punctuation; adjusts word choice to display professional and scholarly language; and adjusts sentence structure for improved readability.
Write an additional 1,250-1,500 words in which you address current best practices in education. This section should flow naturally from the revised paper. So, you may also need to revise your introduction and thesis statement to allow the ideas to connect. Write a paper of 1,500–1,750 words that addresses current best practices in education. In your paper, include the following:
- A research-supported discussion of current best practices in education. In your discussion, propose reasons why research-supported best practices are often not adopted by school leaders and teachers.
- A research-supported discussion analyzing the best practices and their contribution to education.
- A research-supported discussion of the future trends in education and what you, as an educational leader are doing and will do to prepare for these future trends. How does the phenomenon of the education pendulum influence your preparation?

There is a significant transformation in education, from teaching to self-teaching
