Follow-up to the Press-Citizen opinion piece, ctd.

A local teacher has written a guest opinion in the Press-Citizen that is apparently in partial response to mine. I say “apparently” because he seems to be responding an article that is very different from the actual one that I wrote. Still, discussion is good, and I have posted a comment and may post more. I have also invited the author to engage in an email exchange about the issues he and I have raised, which I would then post on this blog.

By the way, for the record, the background of this blog is not meant to evoke Pink Floyd’s “The Wall.” It is a reference to the idea of “talking to a brick wall,” which is how I often feel when trying to raise issues about the schools with school administrators. (See, for example, this post.)

Chris, I've seen this so many times. Any criticism of school policy is interpreted as a personal attack on the teachers.

We need real debate, real discussion, and real parental involvement. Currently we have none of these.
