    Easy to see why this is such a popular book. The story unfolds about a man who gives up so much to be a school teacher and is happily hired at a Texas charter school. Of course he's not expecting crazy class rooms, crazy kids, and even worse....administrators that only care about the money they are siphoning away from the schools tax funds instead of about the kids themselves. The story involves Jacoby White's transformation from elated teacher to frustrated, demoralized coach and administrator w Easy to see why this is such a popular book.

    This book is shocking! So sad to see a man ready to turn his life from successful, well-paid businessman to a teacher and get kicked in the teeth. If you think everything is fine in our educational system, especially with regard to charter schools, you've got another thing coming when you read this book! This book is shocking!

    This book reads like a memoir. The incidents seem genuine. It would take enormous imagination to write them as fiction. I assume they’re fictionalized versions of personal experiences, with names changed to protect the characters, innocent and otherwise. That said, I found the book incredibly interesting and, to use a reviewer’s cliché, hard to put down. The book is written from the perspective of “Mr. White,” a bright, idealistic young man with a positive outlook who wants to do something more This book reads like a memoir. The incidents seem genuine. It would take enormous imagination to write them as fiction. I assume they’re fictionalized versions of personal experiences, with names changed to protect the characters, innocent and otherwise. That said, I found the book incredibly interesting and, to use a reviewer’s cliché, hard to put down. The book is written from the perspective of “Mr. White,” a bright, idealistic young man with a positive outlook who wants to do something more meaningful than he’s been doing as an engineering consultant. He leaves his job to teach in a new charter school for disadvantaged kids temporarily housed in a church building. He soon faces challenges, and experiences ups and downs as he finds his way. His positive outlook falters as he deals with troubled kids, their parents, and teachers and administrators who are variously incompetent, dishonest, beaten down, indifferent, political, and otherwise ineffective at performing their jobs. Gite introduces the characters in the second chapter with nutshell descriptions, and revisits them in subsequent chapters, showing them in action. We soon get to know them and their foibles well. The incidents are compelling: first day in class, an imaginary friend, a girl fight, sex on a school bus, missing money, an argument with a paranoid or possibly demented teacher, angry parents, coaching basketball, a disheartening meeting with the superintendent, and others. All are different, and all are engaging. Concluding, Gite offers a prescription for improving such schools. Highly recommended.

    Good

    Sex, Lies and a Charter School is worth reading if you believe our school system is fine, your tax dollars are being used wisely, and our children have every chance of gaining the American dream we all want our children to achieve. If you don’t believe those things, well, you are a realist or you’ve already read this book.
