Format: Paperback
I read this and Glasser's prequel, The Quality School. While the first book makes many good points, it is not very useful to the teacher. Glasser appeared to use that book to explain how principles of the quality workplace can be applied to the classroom. This book, The Quality School Teacher, is much more hands-on and gives practical advice on how to get students to achieve quality work. This goes against many traditional methods...some may accuse it of being idealistic and impractical. I believe it is idealistic and very practical. This is one of those books you'll want to keep around and refer to from time to time to be inspired when things aren't working in your class.

I don't understand why the other reviewer gave this only two stars but had only good things to say about it.

I read the other reviews on this book with interest. As a secondary school teacher, and a student of Choice Theory I found the practical aspects of this book really useful.

I do feel that this book needs to be read in conjunction with other Glasser texts before use, as you really need to understand the premises of Choice Theory to understand where you're leading the students, and successfully create the kind of environment CT espouses.
My recommendation would be to read this alongside Glasser's 'Every Student can Succeed' at very least, and of course his major text 'Choice Theory - A new psychology of personal freedom'.

My experience is that your classroom doesn't become the fairytale class that is described in the books overnight. Indeed we are all dealing with limitations/challenges to that success (be it time, Departmental regulations re: processes etc) however, there is no doubt that your relationships with students, and their families are taken to another level, and this leads to many positives for all concerned.

After reading Choice Theory I was interested in Glasser's ideas about education. I found his books on education added little to what was already included in Choice Theory. If you enjoy anecdotes you may find them enjoyable, if you are looking for a well documented book on the use of Choice Theory in education you may be disappointed.

There are fads in education; a new way to teach that seems like the old way with a different vocabulary. (I think it's because so many people are trying to cash in on their doctoral thesis.) This has ideas that I think I can use long term.

Glasser is a good man and a good therapist - his ideas are creative and good but also good in a Utopian Environment - which I do not have - you pick and choose and hope that some of his ideas are going to work in your classroom
