Gentrification and Rubber Rooms

From This American Life: the introductory part isn't about education but the first two out of the three main acts are and are very interesting... listen to it.

More reasons I'm glad I'm not teaching right now: One of the more "challenging" children - who really has no parental involvement in her life at all and needs STRUCTURE - is apparently prank calling her both at school and on the teacher's cell phone... I don't know what the administration is doing to help the teacher but I would guess absolutely nothing. That's what my district does best - not support their staff.
