I lived the the story. A teacher in the 60's made a turn towards admn... but followed the books story from an admn view.He was right on with the history and tensions and 'the way it was'. In 40 years in our business. Don is one of the nicest men I have ever known. I consider it a rare privlege to have known him and be his friend.
