However, this is far from a depressing book. Kozol sets the tone early on when he focuses on the teacher-student relationship, believing that the bond of tenderness and trust is primary. Letters to a Young Teacher affirms the spirit and commitment of new teachers who are every day entering the classroom for the first time, and the affection that Kozol feels for them, through Francesca, is obvious. Perhaps because of the book’s structure, certainly because of the nature of its author, it reads like an intimate conversation.

Helpful teaching advice from someone who's been there and seen it all. The tips for communicating with parents and understanding where they come from sometimes were especially useful.

At this writing, this book is averaging four stars in terms of reviews, and I think that's about right. As a high school English teacher, I found some sections--especially those regarding standardized testing and how public education does not address the needs of poor children--quite compelling and validating. However, as another reviewer mentioned, I had difficulty with Kozol's tone at times, which seems just a bit condescending and does not match the acceptance and warmth he alleges to share with children. Well, I suppose there are those of us who get on much better with young people than we do adults. I do appreciate Kozol's wisdom and especially his willingness to toss aside what administrators dictate and teach in a manner that is in the best interest of the children. That is perhaps the most abiding lesson in this book.

I am still reading this book and am finding it to be very helpful and engaging. It should be inspirational to both young and older teachers alike because it is very hopeful in the message that if the teacher is creative and positive and holds out high expectations for the child, the greatest degree of instruction and learning is nearly always possible to attain and everyone can feel fulfilled. No obstacle is too great to overcome with the right attitude and approach. Any teacher who needs a boost or a push in the right direction should be encouraged to read this book!
