The book was intreguing in every sense of the word Halfway through the book, my heart felt for the main character, O Connell who was a teacher at a low income high school On the first day of school he made three enemies which quickly turned into 30 Thirty students who were determined to give his life hell all because he wanted them to learn and to be quiet and to respect him in the classroom Over the course of the book, he ends up losing everything until he and his wife becomes extremelly nice t [...]

DepressingI enjoyed reading this book I hoped it would have ended differently It showed the truth of what such accusations, whether true or not, can do to one s reputation I kept hoping for some type of turnaround for the teacher, but it just didn t happen It was depressing because things such as the occurrences in this book happen in real life to good people all of the time.

It started out very rough with language and such but has a story to tell It is not an ax ample of anyone and or everyone who works in a school system but could very well happen Good read in my opinion.

Free on kindle As an educator, I struggled with some aspects of this book I decided to put the aspects beyond my own experiences aside and take the author s journey Devastating and ended up being well worth the read.

Compelling ReadI feel it earned 4 stars from me because it was not a typical book The events that happened to O Connell is heartbreaking to read through and to imagine everything unraveling just because of one person, who both started and ended the tirade, is intense How little people seem to think of kindness and believe that it does not make a difference This novel is prime example of showing kindness despite being hurt by the person, by still helping them through their daily struggles A very [...]

Sex, Lies, and the Classroom is all about the struggles of students and teachers in rough neighborhoods The schools there are often rampant with early pregnancies, drugs, violence, and all manner of problems that come with low income families The book attempts to tackle this issue by showing what it looks like from the viewpoint of a teacher O Connell , and that of his student Tyreshia who is dealing with being a young mother of a premature baby Unfortunately, that goal is the only positive thin [...]

This was actually very good for a self published book just a few things that could have changed in editing that bothered me The way all of the students talked was so over the top it was almost offensive I know there are places where ebonics rules but come on, not every person in the ghetto puts an s after every word There was also a high usage of exclamation points where it was silly or the characters were supposedly speaking quietly or seriously Other than that, it was a free book and it was an [...]

Teacher fear or neglect The students have won I will have no control over them and will attempt to exert control no The one thing I have learned from being a father is that you cannot make anyone do anything they do not want to, so I will not even try These are not my children I was not present at their births, or the first fourteen years of their lives I do not know them and I refuse to get to know them.

I loved the book overall, but, I didn t like the grammer of the students I think their lack of common sense was overboard It made them appear ignorant and uneducated It was easy to pick them apart under cross examination Outside of that, it was an engaging story.

This book is not the most well written book But the common theme throughout the book that your actions will hurt others is so true This book spoke to my heart since I am a teacher.
