Price: $8.00
How was your day at school? Well, let's see: Student bites teacher; student spits into administrator's face; students openly swear at teacher; teachers are told to raise test scores or look for employment elsewhere. Thoughts & Lamentations is an extended poetic narrative documenting these and other "challenges" confronting the typical "Urban" Educator during a typical school year. Often funny, often serious, always instructive, it brings to life the hazards awaiting those who choose to be "Urban" Educators. People and situations characterized throughout T&L are belligerent students, supercilious administrators, hostile working environment and conditions, and overwrought teachers burdened with the realities of NCLB. Any current teacher and anyone even thinking about becoming a teacher need to read this book and seriously re-examine their motivations for remaining or becoming an educator.

    "WOW!" Man! If this is what it's like for teachers in today's classrooms, I'm glad I'm not a teacher! From the beginning to the end, this book is an instant classic! Boys fighting teachers, slow security--and the kids they have to teach are out of control! A girl throwing a chair through a glass window? This needs to be read by any pretending thinking about becoming a teacher! 4 stars!

    "WOW!!!!!" This book was funny as heck! Why would girls wear stilettos to SCHOOL! I simply could not put this book down! The girl fight was HILARIOUS--OMG! This reminds me of stuff like Lean on Me and Freedom Writers. I just ordered on for my mom who's a teacher in Michigan--she'll get a kick out of it. Great job!!!
