This book not only tells about the hardships and tributes of the life of John Calvert but also gives an in-depth view of the educational system today from the eyes of a man who has been involved with it almost fifty years. It includes concerns and complaints from many people in several states in the country, who have seen issues in the system as well and voice their views and hope to be heard. It takes every position in the schoolfrom student, parent, all the way to principal, teacher, and superintendentand holds them accountable for what is happening in the schools today, giving them a new perspective of what the public really thinks and lets them know what is being said about them.
One of the most important things that this book does is give a brilliant example of how schools should be run by providing the plans and activities that have actually worked for years! This includes copies of letters given to students and parents, the discipline policies that work, and the in-school suspension handbook that John and others have lived by to make their schools successful.
