    I bought this book for ideas and strategies on efficient leadership but found it harped on the makeup of inherently effective and ineffective employees Preachy Singleminded Sexist, even.

    This book comes offas a rant piece against former colleagues than the thinly veiled educational management book it purports to be.Without stating the obvious, Clarke unintentionally takes the reader for a tour ride on the darker side of intra organizational drama queen politics Clarke doesn t show how to move the bus as much as how to throw people under it He attacks any number of former colleagues and staff members for the most minor of infractions acting as judge, jury and executioner This book comes offas a rant piece against former colleagues than the thinly veiled educational management book it purports to be.Without stating the obvious, Clarke unintentionally takes the reader for a tour ride on the darker side of intra organizational drama queen politics Clarke doesn t show how to move the bus as much as how to throw people under it He attacks any number of former colleagues and staff members for the most minor of infractions acting as judge, jury and executioner.Starting out as a rookie teacher 10 years ago, Ron Clark was a real inspiration but since moving from the classroom to being the CEO of his own academy not a school mind you , name featured prominently on the letterhead, Clarke seems to have made the transition from inspiring classroom teacher to being one helluva egotistical, whiny, bitchy bitch hung up on counting widgets and micromanaging human resources via the vehicle of his own ego driven project.Since going fully corporate, no one s as good as old Ron, and his anecdotes ooze with self aggrandizing hubris on every page of this gripe piece.The premise is simple An organisation the bus , is usually comprised of many different types of people Runners are your superstars Riders are the people who do the job, but are mostly coasting along Walkers are the dead weight dragging down the bus Clarke s prescription for success centres around throwing as many man hours as humanly possible to build a better school while presumably paying peanuts and rallying the team under the rhetorical rallying cry of Do It For Da Kids While I acknowledge that it takes dedication and time to being a great teacher, most normal people with well rounded lives will find themselves operating at better levels of performance and efficiency if they strike some semblance of balance in their lives Ron instead labels these kinds of people in his book as walkers and riders aka slackers Rather than developing and supporting these lesser beings , they should instead be pressured to leave or turfed out at the first opportunity so that resources can be better channelled to the runners i.e Clarke s Clone bots.Teaching is about self sacrifice not self crucifixion, no matter what this Gospel of Ron might otherwise preach But Clarke, much like other uber educators such as Rafe Esquith, sacrifice every waking hour to teaching and believe that everyone else in the field should do likewise Unless you have the same manic drive and energy in their eyes you need to step aside for the next wave of keen recruits ready to serve up their standadised curriculum Welcome to the McDonaldisation of education, folks.Teachers are drawn from all walks of life, unique in their personalities and pedagogies some are the quiet, reserved and on the surface, less energetic than Ron type Not every lesson needs to be a singing, dancing, Broadway production Connecting with the kids minus the gimmick is difficult in the short run, but just as effective and sustainable in the end, given a level of true passion and solid pedagogy.In short, I m no longer a Clarke fan The guy performs his schtick and does it well I ve no doubt he s touched and inspired the lives of many children he s come in contact with and is a remarkable teacher But, his condescending and derogatory remarks towards other staff members in this book is a weak, cheap, bullying move considering the person being attacked has no recourse of reply.The book represents a model of Educapitalism at its worst Employees aren t automatons Ron and your bus shouldn t be a running roughshod over the people you deem as undeserving of a seat

    Comes across as a one type fits all solution, and all the while it was waxing lyrical about the author s own institution Which wasn t a problem to me, except that I don t see how using a parable to simplify, identify and interact with employee types equals extraordinary management wisdom.Thankfully the prose is readable skim friendly enough, so at least there are no lingering bad feelings.

    I d never heard of Ron Clark before my colleagues I were asked to read this book by our Supervisor I am not easily impressed by celebrity teachers , so I did not buy into his poor bus analogy Good writers don t need to explicitly explain their parables by bold face typing the beginning letter of each of the character s names Please don t write to educators as if they aren t able to figure out that Rufus is the runner If I had a penny for every time this book made me roll my eyes, I co I d never heard of Ron Clark before my colleagues I were asked to read this book by our Supervisor I am not easily impressed by celebrity teachers , so I did not buy into his poor bus analogy Good writers don t need to explicitly explain their parables by bold face typing the beginning letter of each of the character s names Please don t write to educators as if they aren t able to figure out that Rufus is the runner If I had a penny for every time this book made me roll my eyes, I could pay 18,000 per student so that they could go on field trips to South Africa like the students attending RCA Side note for educators who aren t smart enough to figure it out on their ownI am using hyperbole Clark says runners don t call themselves runnersthen he labels himself a runner a driver don t forget it s all about him He explains that a runner will neglect their personal life, yet he seems to value this He does not go on to mention that perhaps they shouldn t In fact, he says joggers value a work life balance, but then says he wants joggers to be runners Perhaps if he had taken the time to think about his simplistic parable a little further, he would ve noticed an error The difference between a runner a jogger is that a runner is moving faster than the joggerthe runner is then a sprinter, which everyone knows runs very quickly for very short distances Meanwhile, the jogger is running at a steady pace and is able to travel further than the sprinter who used up all of their energy too quickly Dear educator, please value your personal life Be like an actual jogger, and I promise you will travel further and you won t burn out


  5. David Doty David Doty says:

    Full of self promotion and arrogant in tone, this book is nothing but a weak analogy move your bus like the Flintstones that serves as a bragging platform for the author If you re in the market for a good business book, look elsewhere.


  6. Amy Amy says:

    Mixed emotions about this book I completely agree with his strategies on how administrators should support the runners in the organization that chapter should be required reading for admins However, I disagree with the implications that a person s career should be his her life For example, he writes, Even if you can stay only thirty minutes past quitting time, do it 47 Only thirty minutes If you have an employee who is willing to give you 30 minutes of unpaid time volunteering w Mixed emotions about this book I completely agree with his strategies on how administrators should support the runners in the organization that chapter should be required reading for admins However, I disagree with the implications that a person s career should be his her life For example, he writes, Even if you can stay only thirty minutes past quitting time, do it 47 Only thirty minutes If you have an employee who is willing to give you 30 minutes of unpaid time volunteering when he or she could be spending time with family friends or pursuing a hobby, be thankful instead of resentful I respect people who understand the need to have a balance between work and life Throughout the book, he discusses that everyone should be a runner and give, give, and giveto the business I understand the benefit this has to him, the administrator, but is he considering the draining impact this has on his employees On pages 6 7, he references that runners often neglect their personal lives and health and put loved ones second However, that still seems to be the lifestyle he advocates for his employees.He appears arrogant and condescending when he speaks of some co workers I was surprised since that is not how he seems in interviews I ve seen I enjoyed chapters 20, Realize You Are not Entitled to this Job and 27, Go Right to the Source When there is a Problem I also liked eVestment s honoring people who recognize their core values of excellence, focus, integrity, innovation, teamwork, and attitude humility 128.As another reviewer mentioned, the epilogue is powerful


  7. Michelle Michelle says:

    Have you ever read a book and thought wow and then thought WTF Is this book supposed to help people or call people out I was open minded when I started and then I began to see what the author was doing Calling out former colleagues I wish people would build one another up instead of trying to label them and not help people achieve the best that they can be As a 90% runner and 10% jogger, I m flabbergasted that drivers would recommend this book as a staff read.


  8. Amanda Kaitlin Amanda Kaitlin says:

    I have mixed feelings about this book My principal asked the teaching staff at my school to read this, and I ll admit it prompted a lot of self reflection, but overall it gave me the heebie jeebies Some of the advice is basic but solid avoid negativity, dress sharply, etc , but Clark conveys this idea that if you aren t willing to make your job your life and make sacrifice after sacrifice, you shouldn t be there I struggle with this, because as teachers we are already making so many sacrifi I have mixed feelings about this book My principal asked the teaching staff at my school to read this, and I ll admit it prompted a lot of self reflection, but overall it gave me the heebie jeebies Some of the advice is basic but solid avoid negativity, dress sharply, etc , but Clark conveys this idea that if you aren t willing to make your job your life and make sacrifice after sacrifice, you shouldn t be there I struggle with this, because as teachers we are already making so many sacrifices My school day is 9 hours, and that s just classroom time There are extra hours required for staff meetings, grade team meetings, and of course events like parent conferences, etc So to suggest that in addition this we should come in early and stay late is just madness to me I think you can excel in your job without giving up your personal life or giving up some semblance of balance Clark seems to celebrate teacher burn out, which we need less of, notof This is why there s a shortage of good teachers

    Great thoughts on encouraging the best employees and not wasting time on the dead weights.

    Using the symbolism of a bus, Ron paints a simple yet wise picture of how the organization that you work within is a bus There are different types of workers making the bus move forward This book gives real life examples of keeping folks motivated, rewarding folks,providing a welcoming, clean, high standard work environment, sharing expectations, brainstorming, innovating, being creative,problem solving,celebrating, playing,laughing, contemplating,and learning together.This book was a breath o Using the symbolism of a bus, Ron paints a simple yet wise picture of how the organization that you work within is a bus There are different types of workers making the bus move forward This book gives real life examples of keeping folks motivated, rewarding folks,providing a welcoming, clean, high standard work environment, sharing expectations, brainstorming, innovating, being creative,problem solving,celebrating, playing,laughing, contemplating,and learning together.This book was a breath of fresh air It invigorated me for a new school year although technically I am not teaching I loved Ron s insights on how to impress and get the attention of your supervisor He also explains the benefit of being TRULY appreciative And following directions and contributing as you are asked to are pluses for employees I have had these kinds of thoughts regarding supervising but it felt so great to have someone else articulate them
