    To be honest I'm still a little shocked at how politicized the education sector is. Additionally, I feel like there's a real disconnect between the obvious lessons one would draw from the personal experiences as a teacher that open the book and the conclusions he draws near the end.

    McLaren is a revolutionary educator. There's something here for both the casual reader and for the budding teacher/educational theorists. It's like Kaufman's "Up The Down Staircase", but more contemporary. You can't read it and not have sympathy for teachers.
