Finally someone inside public education is willing and able to share what makes public education one of the most wasteful and harmful and yet one of the most noble efforts in the history of mankind. This book pulls the curtain back for an unedited and uncensored view of public education, including components of public education heretofore unheard of by the general public. The author shares a personal and professional journey into corners of public education that will both disturb and delight readers. The author takes the reader into the world of felonious students and staff members, and how their presence in school poses real dangers for all students. He chronicles how some public school teachers and administrators save souls and how others are allowed to be cruel to children. Along with these honest descriptions of public education, the author also shares his personal journey through public education with a humorous view alternating with heart rendering descriptions of students trying to retain their dignity while struggling to survive in public schools. Recent books such as Waiting for Superman and The Death and Life of the Great American School System fail to capture and reveal the heart and soul of public education in America. The Private Side of Public Education will forever change the reader’s perception of public education.
