Title: "There Are No Shortcuts"
Body: Rafe Esquith "There Are No Shortcuts" Part memoir, and a total call for action, Esquith's book relates how he put in eighteen-hour days TEACHING POVERTY-LEVEL, NON-ENGLISH SPEAKING fifth and sixth graders. His anything-that-works approach includes having them read Twain, perform Shakespeare, play classical guitar and study algebra, plus weekend camping and concerts. Besides spending lunchtimes and recess doing things with his kids, Esquith took on extra jobs and went into debt of seeing his students succeed in college and in life. He has been named Disney's TEACHER OF THE YEAR, received a Parents Magazine award, and has been profiled in People and Time magazines.
