My guest today is Jonathan Carroll, a history teacher and a 20-year veteran of Florida's public schools. Jonathan's recent viral Facebook resignation post has made national news, and has inspired messages of appreciation from educators around the world.
In his April 30th post he says that teaching has become a "toxic profession" because of numerous factors, several of which we've discussed on School Sucks for many years.
While the point of this conversation is connection, and to let Jonathan tell his story long-form, I did need to ask if the compulsory nature of schooling could have produced anything other than toxic outcomes for far too many students and teachers.
Special thanks to Jonathan for his commitment, courage to speak out, and for this thoughtful discussion.
