Editorial Reviews

Sam W. Swofford

"This new edition provides immediate help to all who work to improve our public schools."

Carol Russo

"A great resource for teaching that character matters in furthering the ideals on which this country has been built!"

Kevin Ryan

"The ‘soil’ of our schools has lost a nurturing ingredient that is essential to give life to the ideas and the efforts of educators. That missing nurturing ingredient is the school’s moral mission . . . DeRoche and Williams have written a sound and practical book not only for educators but for anyone interested in learning exactly how schools can navigate these often shoal-filled waters."
