Overview

If common sense prevailed, there would be fewer academic, social and behavior problems within our schools today. This does not appear to be the case as uncommon sense, apparently, is in great demand. This "uncommon sense" approach is pro-active and focuses on the success of all children in school. Beliefs and mechanisms regarding the historical schooling of children, along with some post 9/11 issues, are challenged with new ideas, thoughts and questions. Presented in a diary-like format, this book invites the reader into an intimate exploration of personal and professional growth - all with the best interests of children in mind and heart.

"Clearly and supportively written, this book offers a wealth of exciting new opportunities for improvement in our schools. Whether you are a teacher, a parent or someone who works in a school, this innovative book will gently nudge you into thinking differently. Uncommon Sense is uncommonly good."

- Ellen Tanner Marsh, New York Times Bestselling Author.
