is a personal account of the grand human experiment of educating high school students seen from the unencumbered perspective of a university professor turned substitute teacher. It takes you into the classroom to give you a flavor of what it is like to be a teacher and what it is like to be a student.
If your school days are behind you, this book will help you remember, understand, and make more sense of where you spent so much of your life.
If you are a student, it will help you appreciate your struggles, give them more meaning, show you the humanity and sincerity of your overlords, the teachers, and thereby ease and improve the years you are forced to spend so much of your time.
If you are a teacher, it will remind you of the grand, noble mission you are pursuing despite all obstacles imposed by the Education Empire. It will show you that you are not alone in your struggles, and thereby restore any idealism and sense of purpose you may have lost along the way, give you the courage to improve what is faulty and correct what is wrong, and prove that you are a miracle worker.
