med school essays I am happy to say that my next book, We’re In This Together: Public-Private Partnerships in Special and At-Risk Education, will be out in June. Rowman & Littlefield is the publisher. The book is nonfiction. It is ethnographic observer-participant research. Co-author Mark Claypool and I explore how public schools use, or don’t use, private companies to meet the needs of some of their most challenged and challenging students. Despite the fact that it is research, it is very conversational and, I hope, a fun, interesting, and informative read.
