On Being a Teacher
Jonathan Kozol, National Book Award-winning author and one of America's foremost writers on social issues, offers a passionate and provocative critique on the role of the teacher in America's public school system. Writing as a teacher, Kozol advocates an approach to education that is infused with ethical values: fairness, truth, and integrity, and a driving compassion for the world beyond the classroom. Kozol not only sheds light on what it means to be a teacher, but gives constructive suggestions on how teachers can work conscientiously within the system to foster these values in concert with parents, students and fellow teachers.

this book was one that my college daughter requested that I get her for her birthday. She had requested it as she read some of it at a bookstore and decided she wanted it for herself. She loves the book and hopefully will post her own thoughts about it here! Read full review
