The Educator Inferno
A Curricular Descent
After reading Schiro's (2013) Curriculum Theory: Conflicting Visions and Enduring Concerns, a former high school teacher begins to view her past years teaching not as a fond career choice, but a hell with many levels. Through identifying levels of her inferno while teaching, she reflects upon the ideologies Schiro lists, seeing not only where she could have improved, but where she utterly failed. In order for this teacher to emerge from her inferno, she must first descend, then emerge with an ideology that is authentic to what she values in education.
