Praise for Going thru Life with a "Kick Me" Sign

"Gripping ... An eye-opening look behind the walls of urban education. A true story of a broken system and the desolation that lies in its wake ... challenges, triumphs, heartaches, politics, betrayal, and a lost generation of urban children."

-Michael Williams, Bachelor of Arts, Masters of Education, Former Public School Superintendent

"This book provides an honest and open look at the world of education in urban America today revealing the rewards, challenges, and struggles from the classroom to the principal's office. Within its pages, author Harry Lee creatively shares his experience as a teacher in an urban setting by weaving humorous and heartwarming chalkboard stories of the life of a teacher, student life, poverty, security in the classroom, as well as exposing the shifting values and politics in education ..."
