Detachment - Review

"Teachers from any sort of district will recognize the accurate depictions of so many issues in modern schooling - NCLB (No Child Left Behind),
standardized test scores, administrative politics, at-risk youth, parental involvement (and the lack thereof), the "dumping" of under-performing students
at a particular school, the link between school rankings and local property values, sexual innuendos and assumptions regarding teacher-student bonding,
teacher burnout, and so much more...."



Detachment - Review
"... Each one of these women, like Henry, are in a life and death struggle to find beauty in a seemingly vicious and loveless world."

Ray LaMontagne - Empty Lyrics

"There's a lot of things I don't understand
Why so many people lie
It's their hurt I hide that fuels the fire inside me
Will I always feel this way
So empty, so estranged"
