In my day job, I teach public school. More specifically, I teach 8th grade, North Carolina History. This morning, I caught the following article on Yahoo about John Kitna and his new life as a high school Algebra teacher. Awesome story, and as one who has had kids much like the ones described in the article (in fact, I looked at some of the descriptions and half expected to see familiar names).
Anyone who teaches in a public school needs to read this. Anyone who is a Bengals fan needs to read this. Anyone who wonders why public schools have the struggles they do need to read this.
