EDUCATION-REFORM “The elephant in the classroom is no more. This conversational exposé addresses the difficult truths facing our educational system. Grab a cup of coffee, sit down, and become enlightened to not only the issues of education but also get an understanding of how you can help fix what is broken.” —Kelly McWilliams, administrator 


“You will be shocked, enraged, and ready to start having difficult conversations.” —Jamie Fowler, educator


“Many have been waiting for a leader with the chutzpah to tackle and provide simple solutions for the troubles plaguing the American education system. Whether you are a teacher, an administrator, or a parent, you will hear the truth and your perspective addressed accurately as Cathy S. Tooley has personally looked through each lens. Of course, some truths might be hard to swallow, but they are truths nonetheless, and admitting they are true is the first step toward recovery. If the political wrangling stops, as Tooley suggests, and all interested parties come together for the sake of the children, the educational pendulum that is swinging dangerously out of control can be reined in with simple, logical steps for the benefit of the children—and aren’t they who it’s all about?”

—Shellie Stoker, educator


“Tooley’s book is the start of a movement of change that must happen in education. Her story will open your eyes to the problems in education and make you think how you can be part of the answer.”

—Wendy Myers, administrator



The intent of this book is to look at our education system as it currently works and to evaluate not only why this system is broken, but also how we might move forward, together, to fix it.So, how do we fix our failing schools? We begin by finally taking the educator out from behind the desk and bring them to the table to share in the decisions and solutions regarding what is happening in our schools. It is time to part the curtains on our public school system and show you the villains, the heroes, the talented, and the not so talented. It is time to give you a behind the scenes view of our educational stage.
