Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The Essential 55: rules for a lifetime. EducationWorld.com
Ron Clark's approach to classroom management is clearly a three-legged stool made of high expectations, an unmistakable belief that children can succeed, and a support system that makes students want to do the right thing. All three ingredients are a must for the magical recipe we see in this book. Frank Buck, former Editorial Advisor to the National Association of Elementary School Principals, Principal Magazine
The winner of the 2001 Disney Teacher of the Year Award presents some revolutionary ideas for the classroom: manners, industriousness, and accountability.... [Ron's] rules go beyond simple politeness: they promote respect for self and others, and help foster a mature and responsible way of living in the world.... [H]is cogent explanations about why he created his rules and his closing tips on dealing with parents and children offer plenty of ideas and much-needed support...this book is a definite winner... Clark's slim but valuable volume will make a welcome addition to any teacher's library. Publishers Weekly
“Clark, a North Carolina native, writes with a warm, Southern friendliness, and his cogent explanations about why he created his rules and his closing tips on dealing with parents and children offer plenty of ideas and much-needed support….This book is a definite winner; it also makes a strong case that students lack only good teachers to achieve great things.” Publishers Weekly on the original The Essential 55
