Dr. Swengel's Plainston Chronicles
reads like an epic novel as his characters tell their stories in
either letters written to each other or journal entries or editor's
Thus is the reader propelled through the narratives, following the trials and tribulations of the very real characters.
The book makes one want to immediately start such a school as Dr. Swengel envisions, as such a school addresses the whole child, not just "book larnin'."
When children, at an early age, learn to care about and for their fellow students, this caring attitude carries through their life.
Such a school is interactive with its community and impacts it in a very positive way. The effects ripple out even beyond the immediate community and could ultimately affect governments and the way nations are run. Hope springs anew that the world could indeed become a better place!
learning accelerated, children learned skills in many areas, and
discipline problems disappeared.
...it worked miracles in my classrooms."
- Educator, Joan Larimore
explores concepts of teaching that are so sensible and attentive to
the sensitivities of young students one must ask why this is not
being done now... in all the schools?
- Teacher, Beau Randt
