NYT Magazine’s Education Issue

9781594488221Education reform is the focus of the upcoming issue of the New York Times Magazine.

One of the featured pieces, titled “The Real-Life ‘Glee’ in Levittown, Pa.,” is adapted from  contributing writer Michael Sokolove’s latest book, Drama High: The Incredible True Story of a Brilliant Teacher, a Struggling Town, and the Magic of Theater (Penguin/Riverhead, 9/26).

The article has particular resonance because Sokolove experienced his subject, inspirational drama teacher Lou Volpe, first hand, when he was a high school student. He returned to Levittown to chronicle Volpe’s final classes before retirement. Kirkus calls the book, “A memorable, uplifting story about a man who helped students create meaning, hope and magic for themselves and their beleaguered community.”
