“Philip Bigler's new book is at once a fascinating memoir of an illustrious career in and out of the classroom, an insightful account of the successes and failures of American education, and a somber meditation on a nation, and a civilization, in crisis.  It should be required reading for anyone concerned about our country's future.”  

Dr. Lee Congdon, Professor Emeritus, JMU

“We need more teachers like Philip Bigler and all our other honorees in every classroom in America today. For it is they who can make our schools the best in the world. It is they who can guarantee that America will have another American Century in the 21st Century.”
