1 Review
In A Time to Learn, Wood offers guidelines, practical plans, and advice based on his observations and experiences as a high, school principal. His focus is not on policy decisions or legislative debates, but on the real lives of teachers, students, and parents whose determination helped reshape the school. Wood also confronts the problems and social issues facing today's teenagers -- from gang violence and pregnancy to drugs and apathy -- and presents viable solutions in which we, as responsible adults, can become the most effective instruments of change.
