What the —-? Nashville Loses 50% of New Teachers in Three Years

I’m working hard to clean up my language. I’ve not tweeted, facebooked, or blogged an expletive in a full 48 hours. But the near-constant barrage of reports of meanness, stupidity, and just plain BAD warrants a few choice words don’t you think?

Don’t worry, I’m sticking to my moratorium on cursing even though the thought of losing so many new teachers every year makes me wanna scream “what the &%$@!”

I won’t bore you with a lot of words drenched in self-righteous platitudes – at least not in this post. Just throwing out some food for thought (with links to supporting articles).


  • We must also think in terms of quality teacher preparation programs and a robust support system within the district. Apparently, Dr. Joseph is working on the latter.

Who is Butter Emales? (But her emails…)
