Interview with Fred Nauman

You had made a commitment to teaching and you were suspended or kicked out and then had been reinstated but not allowed to teach. How did you feel as an educator being in that position when you were sent back into the schools?


Well, ah, being in the school and not being allowed to teach, ah, was terribly frustrating. Ah, I, we were in effect being asked, ah, we were being paid to sit there and do nothing, and, and, that's a terrible feeling, ah, for anyone, particularly difficult when you know that you, you can do some good for people who need a great deal of, of things done for them. And instead you're being wasted. So I would say frustration was big.
