Welsh, an English instructor in Alexandria, Va., raises perennial questionshow to serve students better, whether they are gifted, average or slowand complaintsabout school reformers and bureaucrats. Welsh also agonizes over those students he was unable to reach. Education experts should pay heed to the sage suggestions offered here for dealing with the crisis in our schools. Author tour.
