" If you are interested in education and the class structure in this country, this is a very interesting book to read. It is very well written and skips a lot of the jargon used in most books like it. " said.

" A fabulous book for every teacher no matter what subject or grade. I took a class from Stephanie and she is so awesome. She does a great job of teaching you how to create a community in your classroom. She comes from an poor-working class family herself and is very aware of the silence in classism. " said.

"This was a powerful, wonderful book which I would recommend to every teacher. Although the book concerns a group of elementary school level girls, the content is relevant and accessible for teachers at all levels. The book is theoretical, providing some of the most concise and readable discussions of critical theory for teachers that I have seen, but it is also practical, with exercises teachers can do to interrogate their own practice. Although the book focuses on "what teachers can do to make a difference," the author does not confine this to in-school interventions, but acknowledges that the problem is much greater than what goes on in our classrooms and that political action is needed. She gives concrete suggestions for us to "Do one tiny thing. And then do another. And another." She points out that "Apathy doesn't help you get the next meal on the table, the rent paid, and the kids to school in the morning, but pushing forward when many obstacles are blocking your path does." True that. " said.

" Brilliant and informed ethnography from four years of working with low-SES female students who are so much more than that label - they are proud, engaged, excited, lonely, connected, loyal, communicative, and a thousand other things. This book was so informative and will help me as I continue my work as a teacher. " said.
