A Major Threat
The release of the most recent national poll of the public’s attitudes toward the public schools reveals a major threat facing public education. This month, PDK International, a leading thought-leader for the educational profession, reported that broad discontent is leading half of our nation’s teachers to consider quitting their jobs. This is a growing concern of mine, and it is one of the reasons why I wrote America’s Schools at a Turning Point: And how we THE PEOPLE CAN help shape their future and Cleaning Up the Mess from Sacred Cows: A Strategy to Take Back Our Public Schools. The PDK report is illuminating and worth reading.
