Description - Square Peg by Todd Rose

In Square Peg, Rose and Ellison take the reader on an extraordinary personal journey that illuminates the struggles of millions of children - and their parents and teachers - in an antiquated school system that experts say fail the majority of students. Rose shares stories from his own troubled childhood, as well as ground-breaking findings in cognitive neuroscience and psychology, and advances in the educational field that will help the parents and teachers of kids who have been casualties of conventional schools. Square Peg is a compelling manifesto.
