9780984198399: Teacher, Teacher, It's Not Fair: And Other Poems Written By a Teacher Trying to Keep Education in Line

"Teacher, teacher, it's not fair. I have written down to there. So has Johnny; so has Sue. Why do I have more to do? Get their papers; let's compare. That's not equal! That's not fair!" So begins the title poem--one of dozens about issues in schools. Other poems include: "Skip the Question" "Just Who Is Failing Whom Here" "In the Main-stream I was Drowning" "Turning Our Schools Upside Down" "From Your Model New Employee" "And Then There's Lowly Elementary" These poems are samples written by a teacher trying to keep education in line. Mike left college teaching for a fifth grade classroom in order to have a more direct impact on the education of children. Little did he suspect he would so often find schools getting in the way of education. Teacher, Teacher, It's Not Fair uses humor, sarcasm, logic, and criticism to portray the battles that can only be seen from within the trenches.

He had received a bachelor's degree from Brown University and a master's from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. After teaching four years in day care centers, Michael was an associate professor for three years at Lyndon State College and for three years at Unity College. He currently teaches part-time at Osher Lifelong Learning Institute and develops materials for K8resources. Michael also enjoys hiking, watching movies, and telling bad jokes. He is living proof that, at least in the area of basketball, practice does not make perfect.
