6 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, "Queen" LouAnne offers her down-to-earth advice about fixing schools. Johnson makes no secret about the fact that she is fed up with an educational system that is too quick to label and write off children who don't fit the mold. Among her royal rules for fixing the system: no class shall have more than 20 students, all elected representatives must teach in a public school classroom for two weeks, and the testing frenzy must stop this very second! LouAnne is a passionate advocate for schools that are smaller, healthier, more humane, and more attuned to different learning styles. With humor and good sense, she shows how a compassionate teacher or parent can cut through the red tape and make a crucial difference in the life of a child."--Jacket

The girls in the back of the class by LouAnne Johnson( Book )

3 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When LouAnne Johnson started teaching, she was young, idealistic, excited to help her students learn. But the students, long neglected and labeled hopeless, had other ideas, and it took all of LouAnne's humor and ingenuity - not to mention her Marine training - to turn a group of "time servers" into the proud and successful kids described in My Posse Don't Do Homework. Attitudes changed, test scores improved, and graduation rates increased. With a new group of students came new problems, and LouAnne's commitment to making sure more girls stayed in school introduced her to a new set of challenges. Her account of the struggles she and her students faced in overcoming liabilities in and out of the classroom - drugs, teen pregnancies, abuse, and poverty - makes The Girls in the Back of the Class a fascinating, moving story of what it means to be a teacher in America today
