'Forget No Child Left Behind, Forget More Money, Let’s put Common Sense into our Public Schools,' says Debra Craig, Teacher/Author and now Founder of B.U.T.T. and B.U.S.T.

October 18, 2005 -- Despite the unusual acronyms of her organizations, Debra Craig is serious about improving public schools. She has created these two organizations, B.U.T.T. and B.U.S.T., in hopes of creating attention about the problems with public schools and finding real ways of making them better. This former kindergarten teacher hopes her efforts will become the touchstone of a new education

 revolution in America. She wants to do this by forgetting what “scientifically-based research says,” but instead, do what common sense dictates.

 “  Teachers are supposedly educated and politicians act like they are smart.  
“If you notice, I am careful not to say our goal is putting common sense 'back into schools' because I wonder how much common sense has ever been a part of public education

,” adds this eight-year teaching veteran.

“Teachers are supposedly educated and politicians act like they are smart. Why then do schools continue questionable practices like 'journal writing' and live in fear of the government’s nonsensical educational policy, NCLB, which is clueless about the reality of students?” asks the organization’s founder Debra Craig.

Debra’s recently released book, Why Is the Teacher’s Butt So Big?, looks at 111 mysteries or things she hasn’t been able to figure out about public schools. Some of her “mysteries” include issues on money and public schools, education’s love affair with homework, and teachers skewed views on grading. However, this Southern California high school

 teacher saves her biggest criticism for the No Child Left Behind Act which sets out to close the achievement gap between Caucasians/Asians and African Americans/Hispanics.

“The achievement gap has closed very little in the state of California despite the diligent efforts of public schools these last four years. Maybe now will the government believe it isn’t all about blaming the teachers and schools?” says Debra. “Plus it’s absurd that the government puts no responsibility on the students and parents for their own academic success.”

Currently, Debra is the teacher in an on-campus suspension class in a low socio-economic school in Moreno Valley, California, a city 60 miles east of Los Angeles. The title of her book refers to a real comment made by a kindergartner to another student on her first day of teaching.

Debra is scheduling media appearances and interviews to discuss her newly-formed organizations and recently published book. Her book is available at Amazon.com and http://www.debracraig.com. Please contact her at (951) 247-6980.
