For Immediate Press Release * PIECE OF CAKE
Los Angeles, CA – Having taught around the world, Dr. Napoli Fiatro St. Croix is well aware of the privileged education system afforded to all American children. However, at the same time, he has never witnessed such high levels of racism, prejudice and intolerance in any other country – even those in the third world. Concerned about the paradox between the U.S. school system’s potential and its actual daily realities, Dr. St. Croix tackles the issues head-on in a compelling and enlightening new book.
‘Behind The Blackboard: An American Tragedy’ is part fiction, and part bold wake-up call; a work of satire that doesn’t beat around the bush when highlighting the flaws crippling the education of millions of children on a daily basis.
Behind the Blackboard * An American Tragedy / retitled The Evils of Prejudice in illustrated edition is a satire short story of racism, prejudice, and bigotry in American Schools. It is also a story of love, faith, and hope that someday as, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr… said…” Judge me not by the color of my skin, but by the content of my character! ”
“The bottom line is that we must teach tolerance in our schools,” explains Dr. St. Croix. “We are an immigrant nation and everybody, no matter where they came from, deserves to be treated with the same level of respect and dignity. This starts with learning about the cultures of all Americans, helping each other, and staying true to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s vision for humanity.”
Continuing, “This book follows ten successful volumes I penned for children, imparting a myriad of lessons that go far and beyond what the classroom will teach them. In fact, many of my stories directly tackle problems that fester in the classroom itself. In this day and age our nation’s youth need all of the empowerment they can get, and I feel I have a lot to contribute having seen how children learn and develop the world over.”
