Ron Clark Makes Stop In Greenville

Nationally renowned teacher and ECU alum Ron Clark returned to his native Greenville this week.

Clark was signing copies of his new book The End of Molasses Classes at the Barnes and Noble in Greenville. It is Clark's third book, and like his first two, focuses on teaching.

Clark now runs a school bearing his name in Atlanta. He was the subject of the 2006 film The Ron Clark Story starring Matthew Perry.

    If Ron Clark is so great, why did he have to go all the way to Atlanta to open his school? Why not give back to the community you grew up in?

    Amen - We are so highly focused on Testing that teaching/learning has suffered. One of our local schools will be letting all of its teachers go in 2012 if we do not make it. Even top notch teachers who's scores are better than the state average will be out the door if the school does not make it!

    Mr.Clark had my child for three years and she remembers it and had a better outlook after having him , his trip's ,running around the room, standing on tables and lot more way,s to make his class fun and educating at the same time, his trip to DC and meeting the president(Bill Clinton) trips to N.Y. He is a pace setter for the rest of the teachers Keep un the good work for our children Thanks Ron.

    It's great that Mr. Clark was able to work with (or around) the system and actually teach the children. There are a lot of great people in teaching in eastern NC, but it does get very frustrating with all the political and legal shadows hanging around. There is too much other stuff (testing, AYP, etc) that wasn't there 30 years ago and I believe children were getting a better education.
