Forgive My Silence

Writing about my situation became too painful. I’m still teaching in the same school, and my situation has not improved. On the contrary, it is much worse.

Since my last post, the financial systems of the world went into meltdown, and we elected our first black president .

Remember the so-called “Business Model” of education that was going to fix our “failed” Educational System? At least when we failed, we didn’t take the whole world down with us.

I was profoundly relieved when Obama won, but I’m disappointed with our new Secretary of Education. I would have liked to see someone who had actually taught in a classroom.

But the winds of change are definitely blowing, and they make me want to write again.
