This book relates the remarkably varied experiences of a man whose career reads like an index of progressive educational developments in late-twentieth century Ontario.

Bob Davis has taught in a military academy; in a treatment centre for disturbed children; in an alternative community school; in a university (OISE); and for 23 years in two Metro Toronto high schools. He has co-founded and edited This Magazine Is About Schools and Mudpie: Growing Up in Ontario. He led picket lines and co-organized a successful six-month occupation of a University of Toronto building.

Bod Davis maintains "All means prove but a blunt instrument if they have not behind them a living spirit." What Our High Schools Could Be... shows how his career embodied that spirit.

An Our Schools/Our Selves book.
