James Herndon taught in California for more than twenty-five years and was president of his local teachers' union. His writing about education, which also includes The Way It Spozed to Be (Heinemann) and Notes from a Schoolteacher, established him as one of the most important voices of the nation's school reform movement.Review:
“[This book] is a literary treasure, simultaneously a Beat novel, a great feat of storytelling, and a storehouse of educational wisdom. Herndon shows us, with great wit and good spirits, how good education can emerge in the most unexpected circumstances and how caring teachers can transform lives.”–Herbert Kohl
