    Anyone who works in, or has worked in the Public School System will love When Teachers Talk While I am not a teacher myself, I have a number of family members and friends who are This book tells it like it is It reflects the whispers and thoughts of thousands of teachers across the country.Schnall, a retired teacher with 35 years experience with the Chicago Public School System, realizes our education system is lacking in many areas, including effective and just management of teachers and chi Anyone who works in, or has worked in the Public School System will love When Teachers Talk While I am not a teacher myself, I have a number of family members and friends who are This book tells it like it is It reflects the whispers and thoughts of thousands of teachers across the country.Schnall, a retired teacher with 35 years experience with the Chicago Public School System, realizes our education system is lacking in many areas, including effective and just management of teachers and children Schnall rose to the occasion and decided to create a survey of teachers within the Chicago system She focused on principal abuse of teachers.When Teachers Talk is a compilation of 500 interviews that Schnall conducted with Chicago public school teachers It covers overt abuse of teachers the quality of education s decline lack of administrative support for teachers politics and the school system how the children suffer teacher attrition what good teachers feel about the profession and it touches on those principals who actually do their jobs with humanity, fairness, and proficiency.Interestingly, but not surprisingly, the teachers involved in the survey all wanted and needed to make sure their responses would be anonymous This was for fear of reprisal from their principals When Teachers Talk reveals that it is apparent there is a crisis in the school systems across America The majority of teachers involved worked under stressful and at times unbearable conditions due to their principals abuse There were some who actually left schools because of the principals actions Some ended up sick from the stress And, there were those who knew teachers who just up and left the profession as a direct result of principal abuse.Along with the abuse teachers suffer at the hand of principals is the lack of support from administration and the teachers union Many of the teachers voiced concern that their principals do not support them when it comes to issues with the children or their parents Knowing a number of teachers, this is a very common complaint Some teachers work in dangerous areas, and each year it seems the problem and uncontrollable children increase It s essential that teachers know the administration is there to support them.Schnall includes a random survey and interview of ten additional teachers from the largest school systems across the country This small sample reflects the larger Chicago study She also includes a section that provides the teachers an opportunity to suggest solutions to this widespread problem.When Teachers Talk is an enlightening and sobering read It makes clear our education system is in dire need of repair I recommend this book I think it s vital that everyone is aware of what s going on and insists on change.Karen Cioffi, Reviewer for BookPleasures.com

    Only by understanding the bad news can we accept the need for solutions This book is about the perceived decline of the American public school system and indentifies as a significant cause inefficient and ineffective school administration The author bases her conclusions on a combination of statistical data and 500 interviews of Chicago public teachers conducted between 2000 and 2005 Ms Schnall concludes that abuse of teachers by principals is a major contributor.If successful graduation is Only by understanding the bad news can we accept the need for solutions This book is about the perceived decline of the American public school system and indentifies as a significant cause inefficient and ineffective school administration The author bases her conclusions on a combination of statistical data and 500 interviews of Chicago public teachers conducted between 2000 and 2005 Ms Schnall concludes that abuse of teachers by principals is a major contributor.If successful graduation is a measure of educational success, is a 70% success rate acceptable Is it acceptable that only 48% of African American males earn a diploma What are the barriers to higher rates of success What influences these rates Is there a crisis in education And if there is, what do Americans want to do about it While I agree with Ms Schnall that effective administration and leadership is part of the equation, and that the power of principals should not be unfettered, I suspect the underlying causes are many and complex This book is not the answer to the problems identified, but it is a great contribution to the ongoing debate about public education A similar look at the views and challenges of school administration from the perspective of principals would be useful.I read this book as an interested outsider with no direct experience of the American public school system but a very keen interest in the quality and availability of public education While the content is specifically American, the issues raised increasing the effectiveness of education, and the efficiency with which it is delivered are global.Jennifer Cameron Smith

    This book is a collection of teacher interviews from Chicago about their experiences with principals and how they ultimately see it affects their schools The book first starts with a simple survey for the teachers and goes into different sections of categories that their interview topic covers.I am currently a Teacher Candidate in an university in Canada When you re in the program, your professors try to promote the career, which makes sense since they are training you to eventually become pro This book is a collection of teacher interviews from Chicago about their experiences with principals and how they ultimately see it affects their schools The book first starts with a simple survey for the teachers and goes into different sections of categories that their interview topic covers.I am currently a Teacher Candidate in an university in Canada When you re in the program, your professors try to promote the career, which makes sense since they are training you to eventually become professionals They also try to give you a glimpse of the real circumstances out in the workfield And this is definitely seen when we re out as Student Teachers in classrooms I ve known some teachers who actually warn us Student Teachers the reality of the job and how you have to really love teaching I think that if a survey was done here, the response might be a littlepositive I m a little sad and shocked to read about some of the stories that the teachers in this book told and you realize just how political this job can be It s definitely given me a lot to think about in regards to the profession The responses were honest because everything was kept anonymous but still, in reading a book like this, you have to remember that there is a certain bias and perspective going on here.All in all, an eye opening and honest book I ll recommend it to any one interested in teaching, as it gives a different perspective into principals that you might not consider before going into the profession One thing for sure, Chicago might be the last place I ll try to find a job at I think Canadian teachers have it pretty good, for teachers anyways

    Rosalyn S Schnall interviewed and surveyed 500 teachers from Chicago public schools The result of those interviews are transcribed in When Teachers Talk I chose to read it because I have friends and family members who are teachers and I ve heard some interesting stories from them.The anonymous responses are divided by categories While one can see patterns when reading through the transcripts, there s no analysis of the data It s just raw transcripts by topic.I wanted a lotfrom the boo Rosalyn S Schnall interviewed and surveyed 500 teachers from Chicago public schools The result of those interviews are transcribed in When Teachers Talk I chose to read it because I have friends and family members who are teachers and I ve heard some interesting stories from them.The anonymous responses are divided by categories While one can see patterns when reading through the transcripts, there s no analysis of the data It s just raw transcripts by topic.I wanted a lotfrom the book I wanted to see how the different issues stack up against each other I wanted to see proposed solutions and analysis of attempted solutions that might have failed A graph or two would have helped too.Five hundred pages of transcripts by themselves is nothing but noise There s no way to gauge how bad the problem in Chicago is or how relevant the problem is to other school districts Without that work I can t recommend the book.I received the book from the author for review
