About the Author:

Dionee Schwenke's unique blend of public notice, professional expos and private memoir indicates how firmly education has been woven into her life. Born into a long line of teachers, she and her children took part in the 1960s Sputnik reform.┐While America went to the moon, Dionee trained to become a teacher, and her children studied classics in a tough, new English curriculum. In 1975, while teaching the new English, Dionee earned an M.S. in Education. When the Sputnik reform┐failed she began asking WHY?, ultimately uncovering a century of┐failed reforms. Writing Listen Up, America! became a spiritual journey, the telling of an American┐story that has no ending; it is published in Florida where the author now resides.
