Sex, Lies, And A Charter School: The Misappropriation Of Your Tax Dollars (Paperback)
Sex, Lies and Scandal. Oh My Did that actually happen in the teachers' lounge? Not to mention the mishandling of school funds What should have been a liberating teaching experience turned out to be a journey of a different sort. The title of Dikombi Gite's book, "Sex, Lies, And A Charter School," forebodes for the prospective reader everything there is to know about what's in store. The story follows Jacoby White who decided to leave his comfortable job as a consultant and chase his dream of teaching. He is given the opportunity to teach at one of the largest and most sought after charter school systems in the country. His meteoric rise from inexperienced teacher to assistant principal is unprecedented and exemplifies his commitment to the school's success. During his short journey, he encounters issues with the children involving adolescent sexuality, anger management inefficiencies, and self-esteem inadequacies. However, he is not prepared for the deceptive and scandalous behavior of the adults charged with guiding these same students. These unscrupulous and disingenuous individuals cause Jacoby to question the priorities of the administration and his belief in the school's mission. As the turmoil and instability increase, Jacoby must decide if fighting the good fight is worth risking his sanity. Attention This is not the book for you if: *You are looking for a feel good story *You believe that the education system is fine *You do not care about the future of our country *You do not mind your tax dollars going to waste.
