    " Not sure if he should canonized or if I hate him for setting a bar so high. Should teaching require such sacrifice? Sometimes it makes me feel like teachers are asked for more than is reasonable...not for the money, but because there is an endless pit of need in education and the answer these days always seems to be that I (as the teacher) should be doing more. If education is a partnership, more than one member of the partnership should be chipping in to make this a success. "

    " I liked the principles presented in this book. Raising kids to be respectful and curious. The author, a renowned teacher from CA, struck me as an arrogant know it all. He would also make blanket statements that would often have no basis or proof, they were based purely on his personal beliefs and or judgements. I liked the idea of his book, and coming from another author I may have loved it but he was a little hard for me to swallow at times. "
