I am actually cited in this book so I have to give it a 5!=) Honestly, though...James Beane has a great understanding on how to teach children, especially urban youth. He and his wife, Barb Brodhagen, have been asked to present around the world. Some governments, including New Zealand, have invited them to come and explain this way of teaching. They are both amazing and I am very fortunate to have learned from them.
