ElevateTeachers.org founder, Richard W. Garrett, has a new book launching December 20th titled The Kids are Smart Enough -- So What’s the Problem? A Businessman’s Perspective on Educational Reform and the Teacher Crisis.   

The book focuses on the negative impact that a small number of students, in each class, have upon the learning process.  These disruptive students result in a significant amount of lost time in each class; these disruptions further and dramatically increase teacher frustration causing many to leave the profession.
