From the Author
"I wrote Lost at School because a lot of educators were telling me they wanted a book on Collaborative & Proactive Solutions that was specially geared toward the problems they face in school...and to help them persuade colleagues who were still stuck in old ways of thinking about school discipline to change their thinking and their practices. It's had an impact on discipline practices in many schools...just not enough of them just yet." -- Ross Greene

This book highlights exactly why they don't learn: because they need to be TAUGHT. I couldn't be rewarded or punished into becoming a good chess player, because no matter how many cookies or slaps on the wrist you gave me, I still don't know how to play chess! The same applies to kids who have emotional, behavior, or at-home issues that lie at the root of their frequent "misbehavior." Understanding that, and teaching problem-solving and special behaviors the same way we teach academic skills, is a much more worthwhile and effective way to address recurring behavior issues in students of all ages.
I started reading this book 2 days later and the stories at the beginning had me hooked immediately. I felt as if I was reading stories from within my own classroom. I immediately started a book study with some other teachers fro my school and within weeks we were able to start implementing ideas from this book within our own classrooms.
Traditional discipline may work for some of our kids, but it is not working many of them. Rewards and punishments only make the problem worse for many students. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a new approach that works for and helps ALL students be their best instead of making them feel lost at school. This book looks at the unsolved problems rather than the behavior itself. This book encourages working as a team to solve problems the child is facing rather than dealing directly with or looking at only the difficult behavior.
