I've always hated those days my kids are forced into school rooms with walls covered in paint clothes and parents warned within an inch of their lives that if they come into the school on the testing day, no matter how innocently, something bad - something VERY bad will happen. So it goes with standardized testing in public schools. George Stranahan has no "chicken in the fight" here other than being a retired educator that wants what's BEST for the STUDENTS. This is a book that teachers, administrators, parents and older students will get their arms around.

This is a book to share the insights as to why we don't actually, as it turns out, want to test our kids to death. Maybe teaching kids to passionately love learning is more important than anything a school can do in the end.

I don't yet have children of my own, but definitely plan to someday, and because I have several friends who are teachers who have spoken about many of the issues in George Stranahan's book - this topic has always been interesting to me. Teacher's are so important in shaping the majority of a child's day - yet they are overworked without much direction (because there's no money to fund this) and underpaid for their efforts.

George has done his research and opens discussion for how education is today - along with candid photos of children affected by the stifled infrastructure. This book was informative without being overwhelming, and I'm so glad I read. It definitely will play a huge role in my decision for schooling my children someday, unless the system changes drastically.

When I picked up this book, I expected that it would be interesting and take me down memory lane of my own school experience.

But wow.

Mr. Stranahan's book opened up a entirely new way for me to look at our education system. Not only that, everything he was saying not only resonated with me as an adult but also with my inner middle schooler. The type of schooling that George advocates is the type of schooling I one day want for my children.
