This story begins as war stories often do: as a call to arms. In the wake of 9/11, Aaron Roston joined the New York City Teaching Fellows program, created to parachute elite "career-changers" into the schools euphemistically known as "hard-to-staff." Thousands answered the call; few were chosen. 25 members of Roston's class began their service in 2002; by the summer of 2005, only 7 remained in the system. FELLOWS IN ARMS is the view from the sharp end of educational reform, and dramatizes what the term "teacher accountability" really means. The story of idealistic teachers in urban school settings has become cliché. But FELLOWS IN ARMS is different: It uses memoir, history and reportage to create a narrative that finds humor and drama in equal measure. No dry policy book, this is the maddening, sometimes tragic, often comic saga of what ensued when the school bell sounded.
