Class Struggle: imaginary conversation between California teacher Jerry Heverly and four well-known experts

Jaime Escalante, Alfie Kohn, John Taylor Gatto and Frank Smith

The following conversation is purely fictional. No such meeting ever took place. This is merely my attempt to guess what these four experts might say to me if I could get them all in one room at one time. I wrote this in a effort to work out my own demons, in hopes that I might increase my understanding of the failings of my own teaching methods.
