The Death of Public Schools
THE DEATH OF
The Death of Public Schools was written to open up conversation, to stir up dialogue between teachers, parents, administration, and society at large. I wrote this book as a teacher, while teaching in the classroom, and for the purpose of addressing education and how it looks today from a teacher’s standpoint.
We’ve got to invest in our teachers if we want to keep them. The death of public schools will be due to the death of teachers.
Without good teachers at the helm, the cause is lost. And, teachers right now, have lost heart. We’re living in a time where many citizens are waking up to harsh political and world realities. It’s only logical that Americans also wake up to the realities of our education system, which is our only real future.
This book is a fight for teachers. It’s a fight for them to feel valued. For their value to be recognized by teachers and non-teachers alike. This is not an academic book because I don’t just want academics to read it. This book is written in clear, concise terms for the moms and dads who send their children to public schools. This book is a call for the public to rise and to say, “we can do this better.” This book is for Americans to have access to facts and perspective in order to take action!
