In May of 2012, school teacher Grant Frost got fed up with all the edu-chatter surrounding education that was being driven by people outside of the education system. So he decided to write a letter to the editor of Nova Scotia’s flagship newspaper, The Chronicle Herald. The resulting positive feedback he received inspired him to start up a blog site where he comments regularly on educational issues affecting Nova Scotia schools.
This book covers three years of educational commentary from mid 2012 to mid 2015 and includes essays on everything from snow days to sick days, from G.E.R.M. to standardization. Written in an accessible and sometimes irreverent style, It’s a Blog’s Life provides the reader with insight into the how top down educational policies and practices affect the teacher in the classroom.
