Like an odd brick patched into a schoolhouse wall, can a person be a poor fit and yet work effectively within that school at the same time? That is the perspective of Jack Hyde's relationship with schools that marked his years as a student from 1949 through 1967, and his teaching career from 1967 into 2000. What resulted was a unique perspective from working with special needs high school students with challenges that ranged from autism to dyslexia. His is an approach of teaming with parents and advocacy within a system that tends to look at groups rather than individuals. The memoir section humorously describes anecdotes from each school year and the lessons gleaned from them. The treatise section speaks passionately with a strong opinion that serves to guide parents of special needs children and school staff interested in true advocacy for their students.
