Wounded By School
Tells it like it is about public school's insensitivity to children's developmental needs, different learning styles, and emotional issues. Discusses how schools need children to conform and be easily managed within the classroon rather than enhancing children's individual strengths and supporting their academic weaknesses. After reading this you may never want to send your child back to public school again.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Wounded by School reflected my life and struck a chord within me before I even read a page. I knew the book would have an impact on me. I had no idea how much. The stories were heart wrenching and they illustrated the points well. It was also written very well and in a very engaging manner. You can tell that Olson feels very passionately about the subject and makes you feel passionate about it too.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I think all teachers, especially of the younger grades, should be made to read this before they ever enter a classroom. Some teachers are unaware of the lasting impact they can have on children.The system doesn't help either but the teachers have the most direct impact. I am going to recommend this to some of my friends who are going to be starting teaching soon and hope they pass it on. I would recommend this to anyone involved in early childhood education and parents of children entering school. As you can probably tell, this book had a huge impact on me and I think anyone who picks up this book would have a similar reaction.
