The public education system in America is broken. And when it comes to acknowledging the elephant in the classroom, retired educator Lanny Cook believes that, as a nation, we're tardy!

After devoting nearly three decades of his life to teaching and administration, this Goodwill Industries' 2006 Educator of the Year recipient offers an insider's perspective vividly illustrating the hidden factors challenging the effectiveness and integrity of public schools across America.

Fingernails on the Chalkboard honestly examines our successes and failures so we can again forge a way to empower great people to do greater things! It is a must-read for every teacher and administrator, every parent of school-aged children, every politician who campaigns on a platform of educational reform, and every college student considering a career in education.
