Book Summary: Over the past three decades, the standardsbased reform movement has transformed K12 education in the United States, culminating with passage of the No Child Left Behind Act in 2002. Beyond making reasonable accommodations for special needs students, standardsbased education pays little attention to other areas of student difference, relying instead on a "rational actor" model of student experience, and ignoring how differences in students' backgrounds and orientations impact their particular experiences of schooling. This book examines the development of standardsbased education, with particular scrutiny of the roles of the National Governors' Association and its National Education Summit events. Examination of important documents emerging from those events provides an illustration of the conceptually impoverished understanding of student subjectivity, motivation, and agency inherent in standardsbased education. In order to understand both problems with and alternatives to standardsbased education, the author examines the roles of ideology, rhetoric, and audience in school policy. In three case studies, the author analyzes several nonschool models of education, including Marine Corps bootcamp, Ving Tsun kung fu training, and an online, school resistance community. Johnson argues that examination of these learning contexts provides a better understanding of the shortcomings and dangers of the standardsbased model of student subjectivity, and suggests a set of fourteen principles to inform the development of more studentcentered alternatives.

Book Summary: Irresistible beats and tantalizing bodies heat up the night at South Beach’s most scandalous new club. Alex: I hate doing business in clubs. Especially one like Duality.

The girl who once filled my youthful fantasies, whose name is now synonymous with pain. Her father’s lies destroyed my family, leaving me with nothing to lose. And yet I can’t deny my electric response to her touch . . . or my urge to protect her when I see the bruise on her face. Helen: Growing up, life prepared me for society galas and powerful men, not minimum-wage jobs or drunk exes with anger issues. But I’m a survivor. So here I am, practically naked, serving drinks at a Miami nightclub. I don’t mind the stares. Apparently, Alex Archer does. After twelve years, we aren’t exactly friends, but money is something we both understand. Something he knows I need.

Book Summary: This is a memoir of a driver for the transit system authority of a major city. When it comes to mass transit, people of all age groups and from all walks of life can be cruel, combative, repulsive, and downright crazy. Whether passengers, bikers, or other drivers, these people sometimes are shamelessly disrespectful. Everyone is so busy operating at a fast pace, thinking only about themselves, that they lose themselves and forget how to be calm, kind, and decent. Let me be the first to say that the job of a mass transit operator is not hard but it is not “as sweet as pie” as so many people believe. Most of my workdays are downright unbelievable. Some of these unbelievable stories are funny; others are insanely coldblooded. And that is the reason mass transit operators need the best-quality protection the transit authority can provide. The author shares her experiences in stories filled with shock and laughter. Taken together, they reveal the life of a big city mass transit operator.

Book Summary: Drum looks for a missing American in a sea of degenerate expats An American has vanished in Spain, and it’s his father, not his wife, who wants him found. When Chester Drum arrives in Iberia, legs aching from the three-thousand-mile flight, he finds Andrea Hartshorn not panicked, not mourning, but hosting the party of the year. World-weary expatriates mill about the villa, guzzling her liquor and dancing, without a thought for their missing countryman. Andrea is far from sober, but finally Drum gets her to open up. Of course she wants her husband back. But more than that, she wants her daughter. Robbie was last seen going south to Fuengirola, to confront a crippled bullfighter named Ruy Fuentes, who had been courting the Hartshorns’ toreador-mad daughter. Drum sets out to find the missing Hartshorns, and learns that in Spain, a bull’s horn is not the only romantic way to die.
