Podcast: Making the Grade

Here’s more on the adventures of five rookie teachers in New York City. In part five of “Making the Grade,” longtime education broadcaster John Merrow provides a look at how the new teachers are grappling with preparations for high stakes testing in a Brooklyn school struggling to get students up to grade level. The teachers, including a former business major and a former Americorps volunteer, are part of a group of Teaching Fellows assigned to some of the highest-needs schools in the city. They say they’ve left the curriculum behind in order to prep students in just English and Math.
