Public Schools: it seems everyone today has an opinion about their success or failure, teacher accountability, excessive testing, standards, Common Core, and so much more. Yet the people we hear from least are the dedicated men and women who work every day in our schools. Who knows more about the subject than they do?
Teaching, From the Inside Out allows those professionals their voices. Through composites of those interviewed as well as the author’s personal experiences, we learn the real joys and frustrations of teachers. We understand why one equates teaching with jazz and the ability to riff on what’s there, and why another quit before spring break his first year. Teaching, From the Inside Out showcases exactly what teachers think and feel about their work, and it is through their stories that the public school classroom comes into much clearer focus.
All of us concerned with our schools need to listen.
