1. I read that article, it's a good article and I can relate to it as a career changer, but Obama isn't
even remotely a part of it, isn't in the title of the article (as you have it in your subject line) and, in fact, Obama isn't mentioned at all in the article.


Anyway, the story is one that happens in lots of schools, larger urban crowded top-heavy, underfunded schools in particular.

Inadequate ed services for students with identified learning or emotional disabilities, inadequate professional development, and many many more problems.

I salute the man who wanted to go in and make a difference.

It didn't work out for him.

Teaching takes a special set of skills and gifts, it's an art and a science.

It's not that hard to get a job in the classroom, but teaching is really hard and not every one can do it well.
