Dave Grohl is proving himself to be a prolific essay writer. He recently submitted an essay titled In Defense of Our Teachers to The Atlantic that they published on Tuesday. He has also shared an audio version of the essay. It’s almost a 9 minute recording that argues against the reopening of schools and who should be the ones to decide on whether schools should open. Grohl’s recommendation is “Until you have spent countless days in a classroom devoting your time and energy to becoming that lifelong mentor to generations of otherwise disengaged students, you must listen to those who have,” Grohl’s mother is a retired teacher. —FULL ESSAY CAN BE READ HERE
