As someone who teaches in an inner city urban NJ district I feel your pain, but it is not really getting better. The pre-k through 8 school I find to be awful on both ends of the spectrum. It is terrible for the little ones and the 6th through 8th graders do not learn to take personal responsibility. There is also too much focus on discipline, math, language arts, and any of the other standardized testable subjects. Enrichment subjects are really just treated as prep periods for other teachers. The vision of Horace Mann has been lost.
