The Crisis in American Eduction is a Myth – R. Turner

Turner, Randy.  “The Crisis in American Education is a Myth.” Huffington Post. April 10, 2012.  Retrieved from: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/randy-turner/the-crisis-in-american-ed_b_1414424.html

The author, an English teacher, writes about the made up “failures” of schools by companies driven by profits and how the real social problem of poverty is being ignored.

One of the most frustrating things teachers have to deal with every day is this myth that our profession is filled with lazy, undermotivated educators who arrive just in time for the first bell and leave immediately at the end of the school day.

We live in an era where No Child Left Behind and Race to the Top have been allowed to define public schools as failures, when, in fact, they still offer the best chance for children who were not born with silver spoons in their mouths to climb the ladder to success.
