"In the tradition of the classic Up The Down Staircase comes an unforgettable book about a year inside a troubled New York City school. In a fit of idealism, Ed Boland left a twenty-year career as a non-profit executive to teach in a tough New York City public high school. But his hopes quickly collided headlong with the appalling reality of his students' lives and a hobbled education system unable to help them: Jay runs a drug ring for his incarcerated brother; Nee-cole is homeschooled on the subway by her brilliant homeless mother; and Byron's Ivy League dream is dashed because he is undocumented. In the end, Boland isn't hoisted on his students' shoulders and no one passes AP anything. This is no urban fairy tale of at-risk kids saved by a Hollywood hero, but a searing indictment of reform-minded schools that claim to be progressive but still fail their students. Told with compassion, humor, and a keen eye, Boland's story will resonate deeply with anyone who cares about the future of education. "--… (mais)

The Battle for Room 314 is a must-read for anyone contemplating a career in teaching high school or junior high students--particularly those with a romantic notion of saving inner-city kids and changing the world with their passion. As Ed Boland realized early on in an attempted career switch, it's not as easy as it seems. Boland relates his experience teaching history in the New York school system honestly, allowing the reader to see his frustration, pain and doubts. Not that the book is an entirely negative view of the profession. It's not. In fact, by the end of the book, I felt that the author had made the only sane decision he could, by deciding to return to his previous career in fundraising. He grew personally from his difficult experience battling for students' attention and efforts, and not surprisingly, their respect. And Boland did make connections and influence some students. Each reader needs to ask him or herself, however, at what price did those successes come? As a trained secondary school teacher, who student taught in an inner city school and has a few years of subbing under her belt, I commend Ed Boland for writing a brutally honest look at teaching. The questions included at the end of the book are thought provoking and necessary--they will surely be helpful to those who consider them before launching themselves into the arena of public education. Interesting and emotionally touching, The Battle for Room 314 will be a satisfying read for just about anyone, even those who are familiar with the business of teaching or those who are quite content doing something else.
