really liked it

I remember when I first read this book... then, I was a strong believer in civil disobedience. Rereading it now gives me pause, and memories perhaps more than inspiration. I recognize what shaped me into the teacher I am today. I am proud to have had progressive teachers that allowed me to grow amazingly in terms of intellect and reasoning, as well as higher ideals and freedom of thought. When I consider Rafe Esquith's "There are No Shortcuts" with consideration of Jonathan Kozel's work. I must provide credit where credit is due. Rafe Esquith deserves much praise for his passion, dedication, and success with students with limited opportunities!
