Rafe Esquith Suspended Because Of A Mark Twain Quote? If True, This Is Insane….

| 1 Comment


See this Washington Post story for an update

Rafe Esquith, the extraordinary Los Angeles teacher (you can see an interview I did with him last year here) has been suspended from the classroom, allegedly because he recited a Mark Twain quotation to his class.

The whole thing sounds insane. You can read a Los Angeles Times article about the situation here and a comment left at a local CBS station story that may or may not shed a little more light on what happened.

I’ll be looking forward to getting the full story and, with luck, to seeing Rafe back in the classroom.

Here’s a short video of him giving advice to new teachers:

  1. It’s not worth it. I would find another career or go to law school.
