Power Struggles effectively illustrates the possibility as well as the importance of maintaining dignity and respect—for both student and teacher—during difficult situations.”

Philip Ruetz, special education teacher, Evergreen Elementary School, Arizona

“The concept of mutual respect between students and teachers is one that is often forgotten, if not downright ignored. . . Allen and Brian Mendler give some great ways to remind ourselves of this and strategies for hopefully overcoming these issues.”

Rory Mack, reading teacher, East High School, Wyoming
