    some teachers can hang in urban schools some can't.  Do you teach in an urban school?  Suburban teachers while they work hard often think having a few blacks or latinos bussed in from the city is like being in an urban school.  Hands down if a teacher can teach effectively in an urban he or she can teach anywhere.
    Standards?  Standards?  They make me sick.  Learning is not measurable in standards.  Standards have actually worsened the state of education at this point due to being the primary focus in the classroom.  Stadards have turned into the minimum a student needs to do to pass.  

    I take political action every day. I teach.

      I've taught college classes in schools that primarily have returning students, generally folks who were thoroughly tired of school by the time they got their HS diploma. My sister taught in an urban HS in Augusta, GA.

      We do need standards of education, but not of the mindlessly standardized test sort.
