As I read the first few pages of No Teachers Left Behind, I was reminded of my favorite movie, Grease. The principal’s morning address reminded me of the principal at Rydel High. However, the students at Rydel did not have the attitude of today’s students. The principal at Rydel did not walk all over teacher’s rights. Having worked in the school system, I know the attitude of most students. I am more than aware of the volume of work loaded on the faculty. Most teachers went to school to … teach. Yet they spend a majority of time meeting government regulations, paper work and required after school activities.
No Teachers Left Behind is an entertaining read. I found myself laughing—however, It isn’t really funny because much in this book is true. Principals should back their teachers. Needs of the students should come first. Parents should support the teachers. Unfortunately, we live in the real world where principals do not always back the teachers, those making financial decisions do not always put the students needs first and parents do not always support the teachers.
Like other reviewers, I have mixed emotions. I see things from two sides. I’ve seen what the budget cuts did to teachers. Many used their own money to buy things for their students. Then again, when my children were younger I volunteered at the school and many teachers did not want volunteer help.
No Teachers Left Behind is written in a unique way. The author uses several formats to tell the story. Scenes, poetry, emails, all tell the story that is heavy on HBF Teacher’s heart. Well done HBF Teacher! I hope your message is well received.
