Public education needs to be back in the hands of educators and out from under negative politics involved in many school boards and parents who don't respect the teachers or the educational system, according to Janis Fisher Chan, well known trainer and instructional designer, CEO and founder of Write It Well Inc. and the current owner of JFC Consulting. In an interview with Russell Sarder, CEO of NetCom Learning and creator of the popular online learning channel SarderTV, Chan talks about her views on learning, education, being an entrepreneur, success and failure, and the importance of creating a learning organization. Over the years, Janis Chan has provided writing and developmental editing and training services to a wide variety of organizations including publishers, corporations, non profits, government agencies, technology companies and universities.

Chan's extensive experience in the field of education has also given her a voice about problems within the current educational system in the United States in terms of curriculum, teaching methods. Her views, seen by many as controversial, is based on the feeling that education is not viewed with respect in the United States. According to Chan, teachers are disrespected and schools are mired down with the politics that get in the way of learning, fostered by school boards and parents who lack the knowledge to be making decisions about curriculum and learning practices. The educational system needs to be back in the hands of educators so that schools can address providing children with the skills they need to be successful in our current world, states Janis Chan.
