Jesse Stuart’s strong views on teaching, delinquency, and parental responibilities, as well as his sharp assessment of boards of education, are more than a novelist’s imagination. Mr. Gallion’s School is based on Jesse Stuart’s years of personal experience as a principal and teacher. As one of America’s most popular writers, Stuart makes teaching and high school administration come alive in a moving and impassioned novel.
Mr. Gallion’s School is an enjoyable read that’s great for high school students and out-of-school adults. A powerful reminder of the sacrifices that earlier generations made in order to get an education, it’s a book with a great character education message in every chapter.
