Brief Intervals of Horrible Sanity: One Season in a Progressive School
A fascinating and acerbically funny report from the frontlines of the debate over education, Brief Intervals of Horrible Sanity is also a meditation on adolescence and on the difficulty of being an adult. A book for parents, for teachers, for the brilliant misfits who sit in every high school classroom-and the brilliant adults they grow up to become.
