Critical Acclaim for LouAnne Johnson
The Queen of Education
"LouAnne Johnsons book is a blend of common sense, humor, and practical, down-to-earth ideas of how each one of us, as a parent or a concerned citizen, can make a contribution toward improving Americas public schools. I highly recommend it."
Michele Borba, Ed.D., author, Dont Give Me That Attitude!, No More Misbehavin, and Building Moral Intelligence
"As a former student of LouAnnes first 'at risk class, I experienced firsthand her approach to education. The result was nothing less than a miracle. This book has the power to do for the United States education system what it did for our class; turn a flawed reality into an exemplary system of education."
Dan Mueller, associate producer and designer, BottleRocket Entertainment Inc.
"LouAnne Johnson writes with passion, humor, and good old common sense about the joys and frustrations of teaching, and the ways in which caring individuals can make a critical difference. Her book is a must read for all who have a stake in the success of our schools."
Robert R. Spillane, United States Department of State, Office of Overseas Schools, former New York State Deputy Commissioner of Education and former superintendent of the Boston and Fairfax County Virginia Public Schools
"Johnson shows the importance of basic respect, constant encouragement, and unorthodox teaching strategies for a generation (another generation) of disenfranchised students."
-- Kirkus Review
"RemarkableJohnson proves that unorthodox methods can turn a problem kid into an 'A student."
