I rated this book with 4 stars, though I have a mixed reaction. As a special needs educator myself, I have known and loved and also lost some precious students I've had the honor of working with over the years. I must commend Richard Stripp for his boldness in speaking out against wrongful practices and for his personal self sacrifices. However, at the same time I feel that his book presents a very narrow and one-sided view of the special education system. While I recognize that there is school personell who do not belong in special education, and that abusive behavior does sometimes occur in our present day schools, I also want to point out that there are many many caring and attentive, hard working people who "go the extra mile" in schools across the contry every day. I've had the honor of working with Para-Professionals and Teachers who are extremely dedicated and who have been bitten and hit and spit on etc. etc. but who come to work with positive attitudes and amazing committment each day. And while none of them are perfect and they are human, I've personally seen students' lives transformed by some of these educators.
What I really disliked about the book is the way "Mr. Rick" makes himself out to be the only person in at least two school scenerios who seems to have any compassion. He also seems to be the only one who can rescue kids from danger, death or any apparent or unapparent need. I feel that he paints an unrealistically "perfect" portrait of himself, and I would bargain that in at least some of those situations there are other sides to the stories that won't be heard.
Again, I applaud the author for speaking out for those who can't speak for themselves.

I read the book. I cried. It took me only an hour and half to read, so I read it through again. I cried some more. As a morally compassionate person, I don't want to believe that such things could happen and people could be so patently uncaring and cruel to another human, let alone a child. But also being a realist, who has lived more than 50 years in the world, I think I also know that people are "what they are". Thank you for making a difference. I would gladly contribute to a fund to have you cloned. All of the Adams, Noahs, Marvins, Marys & Anthonys deserve no less. God Bless you.

I enjoyed reading this book! I learned a lot about non-verbal children with autism. Although they may not be able to talk, they have the same thoughts and feelings as other people. They deserve to be treated with love, patience and respect. Most all they want to learn.

If there is one book that every parent with a child with special needs must read, this is it.
It will forever change the way you see your child's world. It will make you a better parent, a better advocate and most importantly, it will open your eyes to a very harsh reality of the school system.

I am a mother of two children with Autism one is completely non-verbal and my other is just becoming verbal. Our angels can't tell us when someone is hurting them like other children can or as easily I should say. We as there parents and strongest advocates must be on constant alert and we do live with that fear, everyday. On the brighter side there are amazing people that have touched the lives of so many and this book also shows that as well.
