As Bad as They Say?

Three Decades of Teaching in the Bronx

Janet Grossbach Mayer

A Fordham University Press Publication

  • Fulfills teacher's promise to her students to change stereotypical image of the Bronx after they received letters from South Africa asking is "the Bronx as bad as they say" during an international pen-pal program.
  • Appeals to any teaching working in an urban environment--hopeful book that should inspire many young teachers to persist.
  • Includes a wish list from the author on how the NYC public school system can be improved.
  • Shows the fraud that is now being perpetrated against helpless students by politicians and business leaders in the name of "reform".
