“The courage of a common school teacher”: THIS is what a leader sounds like

March 23, 2011

Parrin, Texas superintendent John Kuhn has become something of a celebrity among educators, because he is one of the few district leaders who has the guts to speak the truth– as seen from the school level– to the powers that be. He is rare in that he defends his teachers and students, instead of joining the “reform” chorus who condemn and neglect them. Please watch the entire speech, read his Alamo letter, and read this interview by Anthony Cody. All are incredibly powerful, moving testaments, from a remarkable and committed educator.
