Underprivileged children, adopted puppies, and self-satisfied do-gooders

In anti-bias teaching, class-sensitive teaching, Education Policy, satire as critical literacy, teacher education resources on September 15, 2012 at 2:20 pm

Okay, I love The Onion which is satire at its best and “not intended for readers under the age of 18,” but of course I don’t even know how to rate my own blog posts  and sometimes cringe at some of my own content when I receive comments that seem to be from younger adolescents who are searching for answers to their school problems and find my blog helpful. So who am I to judge such slippery notions as age-appropriateness or – even worse in schools – “levels” of reading?

Enough of that, I don’t know how I missed this satirical reporting of young privileged college-educated people sacrificing themselves in service of “underprivileged” children as their volunteer (or, even paid) teachers: My Year of Volunteering as a Teacher
