Inhaltsangabe: Ben Tuecke, a small-town Iowa boy, starts his first year of teaching English at Ef Center High School in the big city and discovers that being a teacher is much more than imparting literary knowledge to students. This rollicking, fun, funny satire exposes the nightmares of public education from the superintendent to the school board to the principals to the department heads to other teachers to the coaches to the students all the way to the custodians. And in the mix Ben falls in love with another first-year teacher, which is one more complication in an increasingly complicated life. How Ben copes with the insanity of his initiation, how he learns to fight the system, and how he emerges triumphant will keep you riveted until the last page.
