Every page has memorable lines that you want to share with others. I highly recommend this book. Engaging and tackles, without fear, issues that are obvious, that are frequently neglected or dismissed, that are socially important.
I especially liked the excerpt on page 178:
"Kids absorb adult indifference...Perhaps they also intuit that teachers' voices don't carry serious weight in the wider, real-world community."
Thank you Ms. Scott-Joe for giving voice to that nagging feeling that the power structure is askew.
I will hand the book off to my fellow teachers and hope that they too will not feel so alone.
