A school involves much more than education; it is also a community-one that may or may not be healthy. In School Renewal, Torin addresses many of the problems and challenges that school communities face, using fairytales, myths, and personal experience. He describes how teachers and parents can come to grips with the all-too-common problems of burnout, conflicts, and routine. Most important, he stresses that an educational community must address the unseen dimensions of individuals. In this excellent book, Torin Finser shows us new ways of thinking about education, community, and personal growth.
