About the Book:

You won’t believe what happens inside a typical high school.

From serious felonies to the lighter side of public education, find out what really happened in a Miami high school.

“Report to the Discipline Office!” It’s a phrase no students wants to hear. Parents and even veteran teachers have little idea what really happens inside — until now.

After 22 years in the classroom, I spent 15 years running discipline at one of America’s most diverse public high schools. I’ve seen it all, from creative pranks to guns, drugs, and murder.

Over the years, as I’ve shared my stories with friends, many said: “Ed, you’ve gotta write a book!” And now I have.

Get ready to laugh, fume, shake your head in shock or amazement, and learn how to navigate the real-world difficulties teenagers face.

My door is open. Step into the Discipline Office.
