Public School Teaching Sucks, Period.: A Memoir of a Special Education/ESL Teacher (Paperback)
According to studies made by Richard Ingersoll, University of Pennsylvania's Graduate School of Education, and the National Commission on Teaching & America's Future, between 40 and 50 percent of teachers pack up their desks and leave the classroom within the first five years of teaching. The reasons include a lack of respect by administrators, overwhelming amounts of after-hours work, and poor working conditions, to name a few. Public School Teaching Sucks, Period.: A Memoir of a Special Education/ESL Teacher takes you inside the world of a public-school teacher who sheds light on the problems inside public schools―illegal student-teacher ratio, involuntary teaching-assignment changes, school nurse shortages, lack of hot water in buildings, stairwell and storage room classrooms, and lack of student supervision―to name a few. It's no wonder teachers are revolting, especially during this COVID-19 Pandemic. And in order to fix K-12 schools it's important to understand its past.
