What It’s Like to Be a Teacher in Memphis

Posted: December 2, 2009 in Crime/Violence, Education

I recently ran across a blog that I found to be both sad and disturbing. It was written by a young Teach for America student who was teaching at Melrose High School. If this isn’t a sad commentary on the state of education in this city I don’t know what is. Let’s stop ignoring the needs of schools in poor neighborhoods. Although I may not agree with everything he says, Thaddeus Mathews is another blogger who is calling out all the bad folks in the Bluff City. Give ’em hell Thaddeus!
