Format: Paperback
Prepare to be inspired! This is one of the most important education books to come out in 2005. In this edition of new essays, almost 40 educators tell their stories. Not only do educators from all over the U.S. weigh in on this critical topic, but essays from educators in Canada, England, and Japan are also included. Sometimes second editions are a letdown. But after ten years of work, Kevin Jennings and his team have compiled a second edition worthy of sharing a title with the now-classic One Teacher in 10. I've been reading the stories and they run the range from poignant to funny to energizing. I think this book can be helpful to educators, students, professors, parents, LGBT, and allied.

This is a collection of experiences and how they changed lives. I recommend this book, because it does help reconcile professional expectations with personal experience.

Format: Paperback
Several years ago, while I was in the "coming out process", I read the first edition of this text. It did inspire me, in that, it made me realize that I was not the only gay person (let alone teacher) on the planet.

I was pleasantly surpirised when my friend, Clarence Brooks, invited me to a discussion of the Second Edition. Even more to my pleasure, HIS STORY is featured in this book!

The author did a great job at selecting a DIVERSE group of educators -- and their stories. It is a "must read" for not only all LGBT individuals, but for teachers as well (gay, straight, whatever).

My allied friend (that means she is "heterosexual and supports gay issues) Meryl attended the workshop with me. As she stated, "this book goes a long way toward eliminating bias and discrimination."

I would also recommend the "student version" of this book -- it is under a separate title and tells the story of gay teens....I would get the title, but it is in my library upstairs (in which the cat is currently placed in time out).
