Bored of education? Learn what's really going on behind the locked offices and classroom doors of your children's schools. Seriously, education can be a funny institution. That's why I have written Blackboard Bungle. Blackboard Bungle is a collection of humorous vignettes, offering a fresh and comedic view of the contemporary school system as seen through the eyes of a recently retired middle school teacher with nearly thirty-four years of experience. Readers will encounter unforgettable characters ("Absent-Minded Professors," "The Traveling Man," "The Devil's Disciple"), incredible situations ("Ticket to Nowhere," "Lost in the City," "Yelling Theater in a Crowded Fire"), administrative blunders ("The Giant," "One if by Land," "What's in a Name?"), and controversial topics ("Combat Pay," "Sub Service," "To SURR with Love"), to name a few, in a memoir that exposes the dark and lighter side of today's schools in a series of brief, anecdotal chapters.
