Kristofferson Tutoring Mission Statement: Why I Left Start-ups and Returned to Teaching
After tutoring for several years and repeatedly running into the same student educational deficiencies, I began writing a series of articles for my neighbors on Nextdoor in early 2016 that later grew into this Eduissues blog.
This Nextdoor series resulted initially from a local math curriculum problem but went on to address major issues facing our education system.
