Cartoons about Families and Schools

For this monthly feature of cartoons, I pulled together a bunch that got me smiling, chuckling, and occasionally laughing out loud. About half of them are about parent-child relationships in the home; the other half are about teachers and students from ex-middle school teacher Diana Bledsoe whose work I have featured before.

I met Diana through my blog. I read hers and saw that she did cartoons about a fictitious middle school. She told me that she is a “cartoonist who has been in the education field for over 15 years: first as a volunteer, then a teacher and currently as an administrator. My cartoons are inspired by my daily interactions with students and educational professionals.

In these Bledsoe’s cartoons, she features Stewart, a student with a mop of yellow hair who has only passed Gym and has given Mrs. Banks, a teacher, a hard time. Enjoy.

    Larry Cuban verzamelt regelmatig cartoons rond onderwijs, dit is een nieuwe lading!

    Another batch of ed cartoons from Larry Cuban, many of which are quite funny. I lie the “work from home” one most. Also, the “Instructional Gymnastics” cartoon may not be far from reality someday if certain data-driven reformers have their way. In some ways, I wish my students were attentive enough to judge a class day’s effectiveness regarding improving their understanding. Lastly, I reflect on my actions most days, and on occasion think similarly to the one student’s comment: I could have done much better.
