(a satire)

by Charles Brandick

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
Put on your helmets and lace up your walking shoes. Make sure not to trip, you might get a bruise. We are crossing Sprawling City to a quaint little street. There we’ll find the school that was once so perfect and sweet, until came that day… The day perfect Johnny D. tripped and hurt his knee. An event that would surely (mildly) damage Perfect School's impeccable reputation. If only the short-sighted staff of P.S. weren't ready with their solution. A NEW SCHOOL RULE! ALL CHILDREN MUST WALK AT ALL TIMES. Did it help? I wouldn't say. But what the heck we're here to learn through example so tag along with the staff and students of Perfect School as they hold long meetings, point even longer fingers, and do their best to abide by the new rules. The Perfect School is a satirical view on the current state of public education. Addressing issues from scripted lessons to "walking recess", labor politics to red-tape bureaucracy and the charter movement, The Perfect School lets no one off the hook and pulls no punches. Whether you’re an educator, parent, student or concerned citizen, you are invited to read the book, laugh a little, and join in on the discussion on how to improve your local school. The day the RULES came to stay.

About the author
Charles is an author/teacher/musician based out of Los Angeles. His journey in education began five years ago as a substitute teacher teaching within the Los Angeles Unified School District. Since then Charles has worked as a full-time teacher in both gifted and special education. He began work on a lyrical poem in Spring of 2009 as a response to the absurdity he saw in his day-to-day work as a teacher. That poem became The Perfect School.
