“Getting Schooled”: Back to teaching in the era of Common Core
“Before coming out with his new book, “Getting Schooled: The Reeducation of an American Teacher,” Garret Keizer published popular treatises on privacy and on quiet; each was about how modern Americans enjoy less and less of those two blessed conditions. In that light, you could call “Getting Schooled” a book about books. One of its less happy refrains has to do with how little books rate in the lives of the public high school students Keizer taught when he returned to the profession after a 14-year hiatus.”
Interesting article for teachers and/or for parents with children suffering under Common Core.
