What a joy it is seeing more and more highly respected parents, authors, and caring individuals helping us let parents and legislators start to see the real problems with education that hurt our children every day. Ms. Sharples is a great example — her caring for others colors everything she writes. Just the title of her book “Leaving the Hall Light On,” is something any of us who have lost someone precious to us immediately understand. After reading excerpts from her book (and then ordering a copy) , I am not surprised she is invested in our high school children.
Ms. Sharples posted a “teaser chapter” on her site this morning, helping to get the word out. Please visit it, and while you are there sign up to follow her posts. Her website and blog can be found http://madelinesharples.com/archives/5901
