For some entertaining listening about education from a real educator, don't forget to listen to South Bronx Teacher's blogcast tomorrow night at 9pm. You can listen by clicking here, or, better yet, read the blog yourself.
Tomorrow night's guest is a social worker who will discuss the issues students must deal with, such as poverty, single family homes, etc. These are the real issues that affect you in your day to day teaching.
South Bronx is hard hitting, funny, and no nonsense when it comes to education and the deform movement. Check him out.
