Many teachers have been publicly resigning from their jobs as of late, the most recent and well-known being Gerald J. Conti in Geddes, New York.
But Christine McCartney (who also graciously added her voice to the "Why I Stay" video) wrote a different kind of resignation letter and sent it to Arne Duncan, our spin doctor of an education secretary. She is resigning her silence and complacency. She is resigning that education should be a top-down endeavor and is using her outside voice to shout "It's time for some bottom-up!" I hope we can all join her.
