A Teacher’s Challenge to Think Critically and Independently

The News Literacy Project aspires to engage students around real-world events and to find dynamic and innovative teachers as partners for our journalist fellows. Stuart Postle, who taught at Ridgewood High School in New Jersey and many other places, embodied these qualities. Alan Miller, the project’s executive director, wrote the attached tribute to this remarkable teacher. We hope it will inspire others to share their own memories of great teachers and what made them so special.
