Musings of a second-year teacher.

Monday, February 27, 2006

This is more of a reminder to myself to come back and elaborate later. I went to hear Jonathon Kozol speak tonight at the Kimball, as a requirement for Educ 310. He was an amazing speaker and I want to share what he said with my own commentary, but not tonight. So, I'll update soon on his lecture!

I would love to hear your take on this. I present every year at the Project Hope conference (the reason Jonathan Kozol was in town.)

I feel that excellent teachers have an ethical responsibility to teach in hard to staff schools like the ones he speaks about. I feel that it is part of the advocacy role.

How do you feel?

Sheryl, I had the good fortune to read parts of Kozol's Savage Inequalities 15 years ago when I was in college. The lessons of his book have stayed with me through all these years and challenged me. They have kept me from blaiming the victims for not pulling themselves out of poverty and underachievement. I hope his lecture serves you as well. I commend you for attending it.
