Meh.. It was moderately interesting, though I don't really agree with a lot of her ideas about teaching children from families below the poverty line. She seems to think that the solution can come from administration when the actual root of the problem is the family.

The book also reads like a teachers' workshop guidebook and not an actual text meant to be read cover to cover. It's more a framework for a discussion style forum.
