Confessions of A Bad Teacher
The Shocking Truth From the Front Lines of American Public EducationBook - 2013
An new look at the pressures on today's teachers and the pitfalls of school reform. When John Owens left a lucrative publishing job to teach English at a public school in New York City's South Bronx, he thought he could do some good. Instead, he found an educational maelstrom that robs students of real learning to improve the school's statistics at any cost, even demonizing its own support system: the teachers. Features first-hand accounts from teachers across the U.S.
