How I Joined Teach for America—and Got Sued for $20 Million is Joshua Kaplowitz's story of "An idealistic new Yale grad learns up close and personal just how bad inner-city schools can be—and why" - great reading.

I hate to show my pre-service teachers the downsides of teaching but I also want them to prepared for the real world. And, while the rural schools where most of them will spend their careers do not have the same problems, they do have their own set of problems. In addition, I hope these views help them appreciate the challenges their colleagues in other settings face.
