About David Finkle

For 22 years I drew a comic strip, Mr. Fitz, about the joys and trials of teaching. It appeared in local newspapers and on my website, www.mrfitz.com. On March 27, 2022, I ended the newspaper run. Mr. Fitz will be back online sometime down the line, but for now I'll be focusing on blogging and on other writing. By supporting me here, you are supporting my commitment to blog twice a week about education issues, often using strips from the 22 year run of Mr. Fitz, and sometimes using new comics drawn especially for the blog. (Your support also enables me to keep posting to my website the years of re-run strips that have never really appeared online: from 2004 to 2014!) So much is wrong with American education right now: the movement to dismantle and privatize the public schools, the system's obsession with standardized testing and standardizing teachers and students, the way our schools tend to promote compliance over thinking and creativity. I want to continue to be a voice speaking out in favor of public schools, real education, and real thinking and questioning. As a classroom teacher for 30 years, my experiences speak for many of us. I present my ideas in a unique and humorous way - often with comic strips! I appreciate your support!
