I do not generally repost blog articles, but this one just appeared in Diane Ravitch’s blog. It tells the story of children required to eat breakfast in the hallway of their school. The story is told by a teacher there who resigned. She headed the United Opt Out movement, and her position was eliminated. The school has become one of the Relay Leadership schools that focuses on teach to the test strategies. These ‘take over’ schools promise the moon but deliver smelly cheese. You should read this. It is what privatization of public schools is all about. It is becoming a ‘like it or leave it’ world. This teacher left.
