Summary

The story of one teacher's odyssey into the ethical and intellectual heart of teaching, and at the same time an invitation to teachers to more thoughtfully and carefully map their own pathways. In conceptual and practical ways, To Teach narrates an essential journey all teachers must take if, at the end of their own Yellow Brick Roads, they are to achieve the basics: a heart, a brain, the nerve, and a home.

Author Biography

William Ayers is a school reform activist, Distinguished Professor, and Senior University Scholar at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
