Book Talking

Truancy by Isamu Fukui

An amazing emergence onto the literary scene for this young person. I think it is wonderfully done, but worry that the schools we have provided for our children are completely missing the mark. If a young person can write this novel and have such a poor opinion of our schools, what should we think? How would Fukui set up are schools? What does a young writer need to succeed? Why does such an accomplished writer think the people working at schools are clueless? Many good questions concerning our schools arise from this sixteen year old writer.
