Mr. James explains that a successful teacher is one who can adapt to any situation. Mr. James also takes the readers who do not work in the educational field into a school setting. Mr. James’ unapologetic explanations take parents into the educational world their children attend daily. Though the book is written for teacher encouragement, anyone can learn from the information in the book. Parents will get a good look at themselves from a teacher viewpoint. School administration and districts will also get a chance to view themselves from the viewpoint of a teacher who is a self proclaimed success.
Give Them All A’s! is a rare book that uses comedy to relay an upbeat and positive message to teachers around the USA. Whether people agree or disagree with Mr. James’ technique, if they work in a school they will say he is right. Maybe not 100 percent correct but right on some points. “If I could bat 1000, I wouldn’t be teaching. I’d be playing for the New York Yankees making 50 million a year.” - Frank James IV
