This book is a teacher's attempt to initiate school reform by presenting testimony of 140+ award winning educators who enlighten the public about teacher abuse and its companion, White Chalk Crime™. It scales the self-serving EducRAT$' formerly impenetrable moat designed to shut the public out of their "business." And business it is, as you will learn in this comprehensive discourse on what is truly wrong with our schools. The raiding of our schools, which EducRAT controlled boards methodically conceal, is intolerable. Yet, few teachers report this due to the calculated use of psychological terror to squelch resistance. This book connects the public with the truth, including the unions' role, and constructs a framework for unraveling the corruption. It also describes the author's abusive experience at Avoca, an affluent suburban Chicago school district, and her disheartening journey through the courts, including the US Supreme Court. It carves the 1st authentic path for school reform.

About the Author
Karen Horwitz graduated with honors in 1963 from Oak Park River Forest High School in Oak Park, Illinois, and with honors from the University of Illinois, Champaign where she earned a B.A. in Elementary Education in 1966. She taught elementary school for four years in Berwyn and Hillside, Illinois as well as Phoenix, Arizona, before starting a family. She felt a calling to teach elementary students so that she could share her strength in preparing children to succeed as students and as citizens, goals that she believes require talented teachers to be realized. When teaching jobs were scarce during the 1970's, she worked in business as a sales representative and as a marketing director for an educational film company. However, teaching always was her first love. She eagerly returned to elementary teaching in her forties after earning a M. Ed in Reading at National Louis University in Evanston, Illinois in 1992. She has raised three children and has grandchildren who inspire her to do the work of exposing the truth about Education; she believes that they, as well as all children, deserve better - much better.
