Please see attached a video sent to me concerning the experiences of a NYC Board of education H.S. teacher. Her name is Maria Castillo. Besides being gentle on the eyes she is articulate and makes a lot of interesting points. I applaud her courage because I know from past experience, as a NYC special education teacher, any expression against the system can very easily and will probably lead to retaliation from the administration. Please note this is not an attack against all administrators but there are some "winners" out there. Teachers and administrators must and will work together if our goal is success for our youth. Many of the decisions made concerning the education of Bronx youth comes from consultants brought in that would not last a week or care to last a week educating NYC youth. I remember discussions about consultants being shipped in from as far as Australia. Trust me BIG, FAT CONTRACTS. Here is an honest voice from someone on the FRONT LINES. As mentioned earlier I was a teacher and have some stories or articles of my own to post. Some of them will make heads spin. I am sure it will be heated discussion. Please do post your comments below. The films title is; "Real Teachers for Real Reform". The group behind the project is, "The Bronx African American History Project". The editor is DJ Charlie Hustle. Kudos to all everyone invloved.
