Penny-pinching politicians, disinterested parents and school administrators pretending to be leaders make it nearly impossible for battle-weary teachers to do their jobs.
HARTFORD, Conn. (PRWEB) October 15, 2015
There’s no lack of headlines about America’s teacher shortage. Reports this summer from The Huffington Post, NPR and others all agreed that the United States’ education system needs to learn a lesson.
In his new book, “If Your Telephone Isn’t Working, Please Call the Office: The Hard-to-Believe Adventures of Teaching in a Failing School System,” author and veteran educator J.T. Victor explores the many factors that contribute to the problem.
With more than 35 years of experience in education at the middle school, high school and university levels, Victor is no stranger to the serious issues schools face or how those problems manifest themselves on a day-to-day basis.
“Penny-pinching politicians, disinterested parents and school administrators pretending to be leaders make it nearly impossible for battle-weary teachers to do their jobs,” Victor said.
“If Your Telephone Isn’t Working, Please Call the Office” serves as a call to action for teachers still on the front lines, a wake up call for parents and a warning to future educators.
Victor hopes to encourage today’s teachers to take a stand, parents to understand the power they yield in the quality of their children’s education and the next generation of teachers to be informed about the struggles awaiting them so they may be proactive in fighting against those issues.
