 About the Book 

Theres a battle going on in public education right now. Education reform is every politicians favorite new cause. But educators, the experts in teaching and learning, are being left out of the conversation. And true education reform cannot happenMoreTheres a battle going on in public education right now. Education reform is every politicians favorite new cause. But educators, the experts in teaching and learning, are being left out of the conversation. And true education reform cannot happen until we see the issues clearly. Edgy, funny and poignant, Kids, Classrooms, and Capitol Hill explores the issues, big and small, facing the key players in what sometimes feels like an impossible quest educating our nations youth. So before you choose sides, read this book. Chances are you wont hear this point of view from people who are actually working in schools. If theres one thing educators are afraid of, its that theyll say the wrong thing and tarnish their beloved profession. So they spout the party line and make nice, zealously guarding the truth and the reputations of their schools. But the truth is this: This thing called education is complicated, messy, excruciatingly difficult, humbling, humorous, aggravating, and fleetingly, rewarding.
