—from A Letter to Teachers
"Perrone has given us a gift, a book worth reading over many times, an important reflection on his many years of close observation of schools and school people, parents, teachers, children, and their communities."
—Deborah W. Meier, principal, Central Park East Secondary School
Simple, elegant and full of common sense, these reflections on the art of teaching address the deepest concerns teachers have for their work with children and young people.
