By Yvonne Mason “Author” (Port St Lucie, Fl.) – See all my reviews
This review is from: The Missing Heart: Chronicles of an Educator (Paperback)
Florida Educator Teri Pinney reveals the heart ache, and loss that occurs when money becomes the train that drives the education of our children. Her book is no holds barred it exposes all of the unnecessary stress which is placed on teachers when they are made to teach to the test as opposed to teaching the student. The “No Child left Behind” is not only criminal it is a shame – we leave thousands of children behind because polictians believe that every child learns on the same level and will all grow up to be rock scientist or surgeons. They won’t – we leave those kids behind because of money. Teri expouses the abuse that teachers suffered at the hands of people whose only goal is to make money. Teri not only deserves five stars she deserves so much more for having the courage to take a stand and draw a line in the sand. Every politican and principle should read this book and take it to heart. When the heart is missing the body dies. That is what is happening to our children out future, the heart is missing, the body is dying.
