Choosing a Middle School? The scoop on Paulo Freire Freedom School (charter) http://paulofreireschool.org/
"I wish we didn't have weekends".  How often do you hear that in the back of the car on the way to school with a middle schooler?  My daughters love their school so much that they count down the days of vacations - to when they can go back to school. ... read more

Paulo Freire Freedom school (pffs) http://paulofreireschool.org/
                        Paulo Freire Freedom school (pffs)

        I came to Paulo Freire in my 8th grade year a little nervous (actually really nervous). My old school had been a big mess and I was afraid Pffs would end up being the same way. But ... read more

Teachable moment...or not : Hi Suzanne - use link?
Hi Suzanne - I tried to find your facebook page but I couldn't tell which one was yours - there seem to be a lot under the same name.  Here is the link to mine: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1245126942   Hope to hear from you!

2011-06-03 \Tucson\Schools & Universities\Jr High & Middle Schools\
Teachable moment...or not :
Well, Mike and Arehart were "together",so it makes sense. I think they were just sick,kids in school are always nasty, but they just took it to another level. I always wondered if they ever regretted the things they did? I doubt it.
People like that ... read more

2011-06-02 \Tucson\Schools & Universities\Jr High & Middle Schools\
Teachable moment...or not : not right
I do remember them making fun of kids in the class. For a teacher to do that from their position of authority is really wrong.  I remember James too - his 'gift' was pretty normal jr high stupidity/nastiness, but for the teachers to allow it and publish ... read more

2011-06-02 \Tucson\Schools & Universities\Jr High & Middle Schools\
Teachable moment...or not : yeah, I remember
I guess I was in my own little world most of the time.  I do remember a couple times thinking something wasn't right, though more in 5th grade with Arehart - he really humiliated some kids.  The weird thing is for me it started as an escape from a teacher ... read more

2011-06-01 \Tucson\Schools & Universities\Jr High & Middle Schools\
Teachable moment...or not : unfortunately yes
Yep, i was there for a year and a half and left. 81-83. So I am sure you remember "story time".

2011-06-01 \Tucson\Schools & Universities\Jr High & Middle Schools\
Teachable moment...or not : not your fault......
You were a kid too, so you really couldn't have done anything either.  Just a few things they did.
1. In our little yearbook when the 8th graders could "leave us something" they allowed a kid name James to leave me slim fast, so i would look better. ... read more

2011-05-31 \Tucson\Schools & Universities\Jr High & Middle Schools\
Teachable moment...or not : I'm sorry - was I there?
I'm really sorry to hear about your experiences at Miles Jr High.   I can see how that could happen.  Was I one of the kids that did nothing?  I was there from 1981-83.

2011-05-30 \Tucson\Schools & Universities\Jr High & Middle Schools\
Teachable moment...or not :
I went to that school with Becky williams and she made my life hell. She would gather all the students together and tell stories about me.  Once or twice it was another student, but mostly me. She and Mike terrorized me, it was the worst time of my life ... read more

2010-10-30 \Tucson\Schools & Universities\Jr High & Middle Schools\
Teachable moment...or not
"You have to take your jacket off"
"Why?"
"We don't know if you're gonna steal"

Oy vey.  Well-intentioned though the book fair staff and volunteers are, what a message.  
"We don't know if you're gonna steal"

Disclaimer: my first cousin is one of the directors.  However, that wasn't enough to make me decide to send my older girls there.  We looked at test scores - Paulo Freire beat all other schools in the area, and had better ratings at the Great Schools website than all others in a 5 mile radius.  We also liked the community aspect, the small size and the social justice focus.  But we couldn't get in.  Despite family connection, we lost ...read more...

But contrary the school was a warm and open place. The first couple of days of school we had advisory a lot  (advisory is a place where there are about 10-16 kids and we have a time for bonding). We also have math, science, and humanities/writing.
                         All the teachers at pffs are awesome and they teach us so much! Before I went to pffs I thought math was boring and that I was really bad at it now I think itís really fun. We also have a thing called intersession (An intersession is a week of fun and learning about one subject) ...read more...

2010-10-30 Teachable moment...or not
"You have to take your jacket off"
"Why?"
"We don't know if you're gonna steal"

Oy vey.  Well-intentioned though the book fair staff and volunteers are, what a message.  
"We don't know if you're gonna steal"

I don't want to give the name of the school.  Its a typical middle school in a so-so neighborhood; and the reason for the statement was that kids had been stealing items from the book fair that morning.  But what kind of a teachable moment does that make?

I think back to a different school, a local parent co-op preschool-kindergarten where all the parents volunteer and get to know one another.  Kids do come in with behaviours that need correcting:  hitting, pushing, even biting - but ah - this preschool, Tucson Community School, has wisdom and patience.  Kids are ge ...read more...
