People are talking

…and here is what they’re saying…

 

 

                “…a very clever way of showing the need for ‘remodeling’ education in both our homes and our schools.  It kind of makes you want to roll up your sleeves and get on with the task at hand.”

 

Teacher, California

 

 

            “The whole thing is a witty and thought-provoking play on words.  It is a metaphor for the kinds of changes we need to see in school and society.  Everyone I talked to seemed to get a real kick out of it.”

 

Principal, Indiana

 

 

“I especially liked the following: 

·        the part about ‘installing’ a yellow caution light on the TV and a green light on the bookshelf

·        installing several two-way avenues between the home and the school

·        opening windows to the outside world

·        nailing down subjects and hammering things home.

Keep thinking creatively!”
