An inside look at life in a Florida middle school. The author has worked in public education in the State of Florida for over ten years and describes this book as "A series of brief amusing anecdotes strung together with my highly opinionated ravings". Here's what others say: "The author dipped his pen in truth serum to write this painfully accurate account of life in the middle schools of our country. To those who last experienced these grades as students twenty or more years ago, the realities facing today's students and teachers may seem more fiction than fact. Mel Chezidek has fought on education's front lines and no doubt bears the scars to prove it. Uncooperative and often irascible parents, burnt-out teachers shouldering burdens beyond most capabilities, students who have either been undisciplined or over-disciplined at home, administrators who are too busy counting beans to service their staffs and students are just some of the challenges in education at every level today. Mel Chezidek does a superior job of introducing readers to middle school angst without excoriating those involved. Read this book. You will find it difficult at times to decide whether to laugh or cry, but you will most certainly be better informed. Paula S. "A truthful look inside a school system. Should be required reading for everyone in the school systems. Especially Legislators." Bill A. "Mel tells it like it is, particulary in this age of political correctness. He's pretty brave, I'd say. He takes us inside a real school, where most of us never get past the front desk. He has many short tales, some funny, some sad, some inspiring, and all interesting." Ron H. Formerly published as Mango, revised and updated.
