    LouAnne is incredible, once again!

    I am a former student of Ms Johnson, and am now an educator. She is my inspiration and my 'light'. I teach special needs students and I am guided by her principles and ethics when it comes to educating kids. I try to mirror her ideas and methods when interacting with students and parents as I feel the most effective way to reach students is to care enough to first teach them human decency and respect.

    At last some common sense

    This what we need in America - some common sense about our schools instead of a bunch of slogans and tests and other useless stuff that just makes schools worse. So many kids hate school these days. If I didn't have to work, I would take my own kids out of school. But if LouAnn Johnson was their teacher, I would send them every day with a smile. I even took some notes from this book so I could make sure my kids eat better and I think one of my boys could use a colored filter when he reads. I recommend this book to parents and teachers.

    She gets my vote!

    Johnson is one of my favorite authors and this book fulfilled my expectations -- compelling anecdotes, an honest look at some of our biggest problems like ADHD and childhood obesity, and of course common-sense suggestions for saving our schools. I wish every politician, principal, superintendent and parent would read this book. It might make a difference.

    A Pretty Good Book

    A friend gave me this book. At first, I thought I wouldn't like it, but I ended up reading the whole book in two days. I don't agree with all of Johnson's ideas, my kid takes Ritalin and it helps him but I would still make her Queen of Education because she cares about educating all children. But after reading this book Iam going to look a little harder at the food my kids eat. The chapter on detention spoke to me because one of my kids spent time in detention because of other kids picking on him. It didn't help anybody it just made my son hate school.
