Industry Reviews

"The `soil' of our schools has lost a nurturing ingredient that is essential to give life to the ideas and the efforts of educators. That missing nurturing ingredient is the school's moral mission . . . DeRoche and Williams have written a sound and practical book not only for educators but for anyone interested in learning exactly how schools can navigate these often shoal-filled waters." -- Kevin Ryan, From the Foreword, "Educating Hearts and Minds, 2nd Edition" "A great resource for teaching that character matters in furthering the ideals on which this country has been built!" -- Carol Russo, William Lloyd Garrison School "This new edition provides immediate help to all who work to improve our public schools." -- Sam W. Swofford
