Wakeup Call: Trends in Elementary Education

An elementary school teacher is one of the hardest professions in the known universe. Not only do you have to cope with several children at once, you’ll also have to deal with the politics of accountability, concerned parents, and scarce resources. On this week’s show, Rick Moore speaks with two people who’ll help us understand why someone would take on the challenge.

“Roger” is a college student seeking to be an elementary school teacher, and if he does, he’ll be a rare breed. Most teachers of students in kindergarten to fifth grade are women. “Kathy” is a ten-year veteran of teaching who currently educates kids in an urban school district somewhere in Virginia.

The weekly commentary considers Independence Day in a country gone mad.

WNRN’s Sunday Morning Wakeup Call airs every week at 11:00 AM. Rick will take your phone calls at 979-0919 or 1-877-967-6762.
