Former New York City Schools Chancellor Joseph Fernandez is one of the most controversial figures in American education. Written while he was still in office, Tales Out of School is his unflinching look at the plight of our schools, his prescription for how to get our ailing educational system back on its feet. It is also the story of his Harlem childhood, his years in Miami, whose floundering schools he infused with vitality, and his stormy years in New York City. In a new afterword, Fernandez looks at events since this book's original publication. Tales Out of School is essential reading for anyone interested in the future of our schools.

About the Author:

Joseph Fernandez is currently the President of the Council of the Great City Schools, and spent three and a half years as Chancellor of the New York City school system, and before that he headed the Miami-Dade public schools for three years.

From Publishers Weekly:

New York City's recently deposed schools chancellor tells the story of his life and career in a punchy style that reflects his hometown, streetwise origins; his attacks on obstructionist school board members and revelations of youthful drug use made tabloid headlines upon the book's hardcover release.
