RETREAT FROM LEARNING

A high school teacher reports on the New York City school system and from personal experience points to the limitations not only in students but the practices of the Board of Education and their treatment of teachers. Disheartening conversations show how education is reduced to the level of students, how authority is lacking, how progressive permissiveness only leads to digression and diversion. A quiet protest to those concerned.
