Public education is not failing.
On the contrary, many of the teachers and administrators in our public schools are fighting each and every day to make a difference in the lives of our students. So what’s the problem?
Society. Poverty. Breakdown of the family.
You name it, but it’s not just the schools. Of course, you can’t bust unions and fleece the public education coffers if teachers and schools are not at fault for “failing” schools…
I am a secondary English Language Arts teacher, a University of Oklahoma graduate student, and a NBPTS candidate. I am constantly seeking ways to amplify my students’ voices and choices.
