Hogan's report on global education is one that truly speaks
from the heart. Even if you disagree with him (and some
do) it is hard not to get caught up in his enthusiasm, or
remain unconvinced that much of what he says actually works

Michael Hogan writes more of tradition than innovation;
he is a conservative of the spirit as much as a radical
critic of what insults the soul. This is a valuable book
because it challenges us as administrators, educators, and
parents to pass on the elements of solid education to future
generations and not be sidetracked by fads and gimmicks.
enthusiasm is contagious, and his intellectual curiosity
creates an atmosphere of joy and wonder in the classroom.
He truly loves his students, and has taught with remarkable
success under very difficult circumstances and in a variety
of alternative programs as well as in traditional classrooms.

is no question that Michael Hogan will become a legend in
the American schools abroad. He has touched so many lives,
and given an outlet to so many creative students with his
magazine, Sin Fronteras. He is also one of those rare individuals
who can teach at any end of the spectrum. Time and time
again I have seen weak students go into Dr. Hogan's classroom
and find a love for literature, for writing and a desire
to do their best. This book shows us why.
