My name is Emily Talmage and I teach fourth grade at Montello Elementary School in Lewiston, Maine. In addition to teaching in Lewiston, I have also taught special education and general education in New York City, including one year at a “high-performing” charter school in Brooklyn. I also have two master’s degrees; one in Urban Education from Mercy College, and another in Developmental Psychology from Teachers College, Columbia University. I have also worked as a research analyst and assistant at the National Center for Children and Families at Columbia and Oldham Innovative Research in Portland.

  1. Emily, where can I find a critique of the text Inevitable: Mass Customized Learning? I follow your blog closely and am so impressed with your deep analysis of the current public educational. My fear is that we are pushing forward with preparing teachers for the “inevitable” world-without providing them with an understanding of the insidious background, market based reform efforts that undergird the reform. I think few people have examined the end game very closely, including most professors in teacher education. I am currently a professor at the University of Maine and am quite surprised at the acceptance of and lack of critique toward the movement. I appreciate your stance and your courage!

  2. It can often be a frustration speaking to non-savvy, non-involved citizens to explain what is going on in education because, like Climate Change, everyone likes to pretend it will happen “in the future.” This is happening NOW.
