Truthdig asked Demitrious C. Sinor, an inspirational educator, to sound off on the state of our schools. He warns that unless the No Child Left Behind regime ends soon, America’s classrooms could unravel. It’s a reality that neither presidential candidate seems to fully understand, but one he sees every day, from where he sits.
Demitrious C. Sinor, a graduate of Northern Arizona University, is an award-winning teacher of United States history at a high school in Desert Hot Springs, Calif. For his inspiration to help society by becoming a teacher he credits Dr. Ronda Beaman, a writer and motivational speaker and one of his professors. Sinor has been in “Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers” for the past three years.
