Arts teacher, playright, musician, and actress Rose learns she will rotate between schools for the entire school year and captures the wild variety of experiences in Yo, Miz. While notable for its lens into the diversity of educational environments and experiences in the New York Public Schools and into the one-on-one relationships forged between Rose and selected students and faculty, the overall writing style sometimes feels flat. Important as a first-hand narrative about the crazy state of NYC schools in the midst of budget cuts and "reforms." Review copy received from the publisher via NetGalley.com. (140) ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0990439216, Paperback)

What’s really going on in our public school classrooms? Good question. • Journalists are not allowed in… • Teachers risk punishment if they speak out… • School administrators will only share the good stuff… • Most lawmakers? Clueless. Yo Miz! has the answer. Yo Miz! is the seriously funny memoir of an unconventional “edu-tainer,” ejected from her home school and assigned to teach at 25 Manhattan public high schools in one wacky year. Yo Miz! is about the kids. From el barrio to Wall Street, they’re all present…speaking in their own voices. Yo Miz! is a remarkable odyssey through the largest public school system in the US. Want a front row seat in class? Then Yo Miz! = required reading. Fa real!
