Public Schools

Every new teacher ought to read Steve Olson’s How the Public School System Crushes Souls. Whether you agree or disagree with what Steve has to say, it’s an intensely thought-provoking essay. Unfortunately, while he details several things that are wrong within the public school system, he offers no thoughts on what could be done to change and improve it. Perhaps it seems too daunting a task, and one that would be impossible to accomplish in a lifetime, but in reading his article, the average teacher can walk away with many ideas that may benefit the children and families they truly care for.
