If you are a teacher, this book may give you someone to relate to, and some ideas to incorporate into your own classrooms.
For teachers and non teachers alike, let this book shed light on a troubled system. Something has to change to stop the constant bullying and harassment of teachers, and to get us all refocused not on testing, but on teaching to the child.
This book has been compared to Bel Kaufman's hugely popular Up the Down Staircase in its humorous way of discussing serious issues within the Department of Education. The biggest difference in these two works is that Teaching to the Child is unfalteringly real and at times painfully honest in its depiction of the state of education today.
