Few teachers get the recognition that Rafe Esquith has received during his extraordinary career, but in this case, it is so richly deserved. In a recent poll, over 60 percent of Americans said our country is headed in the "wrong direction."

Educator or not, Teach Like Your Hair's on Fire inspires, amuses, and renews your faith in humankind.
