    Wonderful!

    Great exchange between Kozol and the young teacher, Francesca! The topics are relevant and timely.

    Good advice for future teachers.

    Thoughtful and Enlightening

    I watched the CSPAN interview with Jonathan Kozol a couple of months ago. I had never heard of Mr. Kozol but after the interview, I wanted to read one or more of his books. I am not an educator or even associated with the education field but am interested in what is happening in our schools today. I thought the book was well written, engaging, and quite informative. I think it could be inspiring and helpful to young teachers, especially those in poorly funded or badly run districts.

    As a student teacher, I felt that this book was inspiring and though provoking. It made me examine the schools I've seen and question the curriculum that they use. Furthermore, these letters are a good way to start thinking about the political implications of the way we teach, and encourages teachers to be sophisticated political thinkers as well as educators.

    I enjoyed reading this book, because it touched on the joyful aspects of being an educator. However, it was realistic in discussing the more serious responsibilities of a professional teacher. Kozol encouraged me to think about the tougher issues that teachers face. This will help me be a better first year teacher because I won't be caught of guard by all of the experiences I will face. I enjoyed the stories that were interspersed throughout and kept it entertaining.
