Teachers—Ever Feel Like You’re Losing the War to Educate Your Students?

In our current educational climate of Common Core, test scores, and teacher evaluations, have you ever wondered—what about the students?

Trench Warfare: How to Win the War to Educate Our Children  is an exploration of the “why” no one wants to talk about for our continued failures in education. It doesn’t have to do with class or race.  It actually has to do with simple economic theory of supply and demand.
