This may be old news to everyone one but me, but I didn't know until I read this article that Edwin Eisendrath, the former classroom teacher and alderman who once ran against Governor Rod, quit teaching because of a violent incident at his school:
plenty of blood. I looked carefully. There was a hole. I asked somebody
else to run in [and] grab blankets, tear down curtains, whatever it
would take to keep [him] from shock until the ambulance arrived.”
The ambulance didn’t arrive in time and the boy died in Eisendrath’s arms. The school system handled it poorly, he said. The
school panicked and handed the case over to lawyers because, Eisendrath
said, they were concerned about litigation. There were problems that
existed outside of the classroom.
“I knew that we couldn’t fix the schools from the
inside,” Eisendrath said. He taught for a little more than a year
before he left.
Anyone know what school this was, or anything else about Eisendrath's stint as a teacher?
