Pain and Joy in School.
Schultz, Edward W.; And Others
This book deals with how schools can generate experiences which are both painful and joyful to students. It endorses a kind of schooling which will teach students love of life, pursuit of truth, and human compassion. The book presents both the joyful and painful experiences of students through short stories and comments by both children and parents. The first section, on painful experiences, contains 18 stories, dealing with such topics and experiences as indifferent teachers, physical punishment, violent teachers, experiencing shame, learning not to be yourself, having your feelings ignored, rules that dehumanize, and uncaring teachers. The second section, which deals with joyful experiences, contains 15 stories, on topics and experiences such as mutual respect, sensitive teachers, having the courage to try something new, a principal who cares, a teacher who stimulates learning, interested parents, and loving teachers.
