The Slice

Is it harder to be a school teacher today?

If I can stipulate that I have no intention of bashing teachers of the past, I would say the answer is “Yes.”

The spectrum of students' backgrounds and experiences is so broad now.

Kids have always been individuals, of course. But I have to guess that, in many places, there used to be more similarity in children's home lives.
