Episode 25: "I Was A Spy In The Public Schools" - Part 2
Did you know that I was a public school teacher for two years, back in the 60's? I've just done the first half of a podcast of my semi-autobiographical " I was a Spy in the Public Schools." It is a slightly fictionalized diary of my experience teaching in a public high school. I had already interned at a Summerhill-based school, so I knew the direction I wanted to go in, but I wanted to see if there was a way to apply it in a public school. This is the basically true and sometimes hilarious story! Some comments from previewers and alternative starter course members: "As I began reading the spy book, I felt quite amused, I loved the beginning, it sounded like those detective stories, like Marlow.." "I enjoyed immensely your style and connected with your journey." "Wow, Jerry, I love this! I really honor your courage and determination to do what you could for those students--and your candor in sharing about it, including all the school politics." "Your story was therapeutic for me, in terms of not feeling alone in experiencing craziness in schools." "One of the most powerful components of your story included the fact that you shared with the powers that be that you were not owned by anyone but hired to do a job and that you would quit before you would kick a student from your class." "Your piece certainly resonates for me and my own first teaching experiences. It may connect with some young AERO members trying to find their way in their first jobs." "I listened and enjoyed the story! It's amazing how stuck in their ways some people can be, valuing rigidity and rules over results. Glad you were able to help those kids." "There must be more coming in a series!
