Sample Book Insights:

#1 I used to teach English language and literature, but I don’t anymore. I teach school, and I win awards doing it. The seven lessons that make up a national curriculum are taught from Harlem to Hollywood Hills.

#2 The first lesson I teach is confusion. I teach my students that everything I teach is out of context. I teach them disconnections, and I teach them too much. They learn about things in depth, but they learn about them like children learn the catechism or the Thirty-nine Articles of Anglicanism.

#3 I teach my students that they must stay in the class where they belong. I don’t know who decides where my kids belong, but that's not my business. I make sure they understand their place in the pyramid.

#4 The third lesson I teach is indifference. I teach students not to care too much about anything, even though they want to make it appear that they do. They must become totally involved in my lessons, but when the bell rings, they must turn on and off like a light switch.
