July Book Club: First Reactions, Questions and Responses

I hope you have been enjoying Hope and Despair in the American City: Why There Are No Bad Schools in Raleigh, the first selection for our nascent book club. I asked readers to try to finish up by today, and instead of hogging the spotlight with my thoughts, I want to immediately open up the floor instead.

So, I humbly request one of the following (or something else if you're inspired):
  1. Your initial reactions to the book overall, or something that jumped out at you (share in the comments below).
  2. Questions you'd like to ask the rest of the readers (share in the comments).
  3. A guest post where you have the chance to elaborate on your thoughts (please email me at teachforever AT gmail DOT com)
  4. Some other creative response or discussion topic you'd like to start (email me).
If you write about the book on your own blog, please share the link below and circle your readers back to here, so we can bring everyone into the discussion.
