The school system as labyrinth
The book is written in the same calm and patient (but worried) style as parent Rochester approached the nagging deficiencies of his childrens' schools. He did everything he could to make adjustments and, eventually, realized the schools, wherever he lived, would not. By the end of the book one realizes that he had done all the right things, made all the sacrifices he could and he was still stuck with the same school problems. (Only the rhetoric seemed to change over time.) ...and many years had gone by that could have been spent more productively had he had better options.Was this review helpful?

BOE Member Agrees With Rochester
Rochester's overview of todays education system and particularly his finely tuned analysis of affluent school districts is accurate and instructive. As a former Board of Education Member of an affluent School District (North Shore Suburbs in Illinois), I can attest to the truth of his account. Parents, Teachers and Board Members must read this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
