Veteran English teacher Rod Baird digs straight into the problem of teens, their parents, and their teachers. Demanding the best from his high school senior English students, Rod encounters everything from hovering parents to a school system that promotes inflated grades and quick processing over education. Reading the transcripts of his classroom discussions, one wishes that just once he had had a teacher like Mr. Baird. This eye-opening book should be required reading for every parent and every teacher.
