Dr. Wilson's book put all of that in a different light, challenging us to see school and life from a much larger perspective. With personal and professional insights as an educator, he helps us understand there are greater forces involved in forming our educations, and our American society as well.
I look forward to 'mulling over' more of Dr. Wilson's works in the future.
An inner personal evaluation by the reader to some degree is a guaranty as are the memories of those long past days.
I would highly recommend and look forward to the follow up edition.
