Honoring 24 of our teachers by selecting them to be  included in the 2nd edition of “Lifting the Curtain:  the disgrace we call urban high school education”

I’m not just promoting this book and website because I’m listed down there under ‘The loss of Arts and elective courses in schools’ as an anonymous winning submission, but because I really think this will be a great insight into education as it is today for teachers, students, and parents.
It was also a great honor to be included!

Lifting the Curtain

It is with great pleasure that I announce the two dozen teachers whose outstanding insights into the real problems with education were selected for inclusion in the 2nd edition of Lifting the Curtain: The disgrace we call urban high school education.

    • Yes they are! My husband teaches and there are numerous teachers in our family including my daughter and a sister. I don’t hear too many derrogatory statments about teachers. Maybe I travel in the right circles! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • You do! I taught high school English for 17 years and served as the union rep for my last five. The worst treatment I ever received was from our principal who hated the unions. Her first comment to me in a union meeting was, “I take no prisoners and when you leave this room, I’m going to try very hard to forget your name.” I left teaching within a year after working under her. Bad stuff to take.
