A Day (Off) in the Life of a Teacher: Why Do I Do This?
Kennedy, Mark
Paths of Learning: Options for Families & Communities, n11 p6-10 Win 2002
A teacher of adjudicated students wonders: why teach? The money is not good. The call for accountability is based on the misperception that teachers perform poorly. The work is stressful and complicated by imposition of standards that don't address all aspects of a good education. He reasons that he can't find anything more rewarding than working with kids. (TD)
