Then And Now
Everyone loves a good story. And over the past decade, Teacher Magazine has published hundreds-articles about teachers, principals, students, reformers, and the issues, conflicts, and challenges that animate them. An English teacher is fired and goes all the way to the Supreme Court to fight for her job. A big-city school system dismisses the faculty of a failing school and starts over from scratch. A brilliant female high school student struggles to earn the respect of her male peers. A science teacher starts his dream school.
We usually bring these stories to readers at a defining moment in the narrative, what some might call the climax. But often, the end of an article isn't the end of the story. What happened next? On the following pages, we answer that question for 10 of our favorite stories from the decade. And we won't stop here. In each issue over the course of this school year, we will update additional stories from the past.
