Inside Mrs.B's Classroom by Leslie Baldacci
Book DescriptionA respected journalist turned-teacher reveals what's really happening in America's schools. In 1999, "Chicago Sun-Times" veteran Leslie Baldacci left her prestigious, twenty-five year career to teach at a public school in one of Chicago's roughest South Side neighbourhoods. As she later commented, "I thought I knew rough. I thought I had answers. I didn't know jack." But Baldacci never looked back, and the result is "Inside Mrs. B's Classroom", a compelling, first-hand narrative from the trenches of the inner-city school system that addresses one of society's most critical issues from gritty, daily personal experience. An expert on Chicago's massive education reform efforts even before she turned in her press credentials, Baldacci adds an informed, intellectual layer to this insightful, engaging work. In an era in which many people talk about wanting to make a difference, Baldacci has done so. Here, she shares the whole picture, from the unrealistic expectations to the surprises - good and bad - that make up education today. Above all, she shows how an individual can, did - and continues to - make a difference in the lives of American children.
