"This book moves caring from being an object of study to being a professional practice. Thinking of classroom management in terms of relationships, learning, development, organization and accommodating diversity redefines discipline. No longer is it about rules and punishments-now it is about connections and meaning making. This is a book that a teacher can really do something with!"
—Professor George Noblit, University of North Carolina
