Alexandra Robbins narrates her audiobook on the current state of the public teaching profession. Listeners familiar with the world of K-12 education only through popular media will want to listen closely. Robbins interviewed hundreds of educators and followed several through their workdays; her research has resulted in a mixture of compelling stories and sobering data. Classroom educators are often framed as heroes; Robbins reveals how this praise is used to demand free labor from underpaid professionals. Parents can be supportive but also threatening. Administrators expect students to pass through the system at almost any cost, compromising the integrity of educators' efforts. Robbins provides an authentic, earnest delivery as her voice captures the reality teachers are facing right now. S.P.C. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2023]
