Career change to inner city teaching – A to Z Teacher Stuff ForumsJuly 7, 2007 at 10:52 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment
Visit this thread for a terrific discussion on teaching in the inner city. As I read many of the posts, my head kept bobbing up and down. Yes! Yes! Yes! So true!
The final consensus for me and for others is, teaching in the inner city is worth it if you can put up with the crap from the administration. For me, it’s not the kids, it’s not the parents, it’s not the neighborhoods, it’s the lazy, inefficient, corrupt administration that gives our schools a bad reputation and prevents us from truly educating our students. I have specific details, but can’t write about it.
I will have to zip up now or get fired.
