Quote of the day: New teachers were needed at low-achieving school

“Last year, we had teachers giving up on us.”

“Nobody was pushing me.”

“This year is just so much better.”

Raven Smock, Senior Class Student, The Academy at Shawnee in Louisville

Quoted in Education Week

Note: Smock made these comments while recalling a teacher who walked out of class last year due to frustration with student behavior. Why did it have to take the federal government pushing us to finally do the right thing to get those “give up” teachers out of Ms. Smock’s school?
