- An Anomaly.
- By Annie Reinish. Former student. Uncommon Schools. Director of Staff Development.
Letters of Recommendation is a wonderful anomaly in the world of education writing. In the letters between Emilia and Doc, McClintock boldly captures the very essence of what a good education, and powerful teacher-student relationships, should be. She does so with a fresh voice, pushing us to consider the true purpose of schooling, and reminding us that, in order to improve the quality of education in any type of school or school system, we must question the status quo.
