Tim Mullen (PhD '06) has recently published a book examining the teacher accountability movement.
"Stop Blaming and Start Talking: Developing a Dialogue for Getting Public Education Back on Track" explores the consequences of the teacher accountability movement and offers alternatives for ensuring that teachers receive the dignity and respect they deserve as professionals.
Mullen, who received his Ph.D. in middle school education, teaches seventh grade life science at Bay Creek Middle School in Gwinnett County, where in 2014 he was named the school's Teacher of the Year.
The book is available on Mullen's website.
