While much of the debate over the growth of charter schools center on the student academic performance of charter schools as well as the financial impact that they have on school budgets, there is a growing concern that charter schools use harsh discipline to nudge certain students out. The concern is that charter schools use excessive discipline not just to bring about order and rigor in schools, but to push students who might cost more to educate or lower test scores to leave charter schools. Given that charter schools, unlike regular public schools, are free to admit or eject whomever they want, there is concern that those schools are not only skimming in admissions, but also pushing out certain kinds of students. While several scholars have raised this concern, there is not much research on this critical topic. The current book changes that. We compare student discipline rates in four major cities among regular and charter schools to determine whether charter schools are more likely than regular schools to discipline students. We also study the relationships among a host of variables by six different discipline categories.

One look at Shane McBride told Christy Calhoun to run away—fast. The long, lean and very sexy rancher's every move shouted danger, and she'd sworn to avoid romance again. Unfortunately, with a broken-down RV, Christy had no choice but to stay for a spell… Shane would've sooner mucked stalls than play host to his gorgeous houseguest! He'd vowed never to let a woman into his home, and this one reminded him why. The tempting beauty tested his normally rock-solid self-control. And this unfamiliar feeling was becoming way too hard to handle…

Sick of striving? Giving up on grit? Had enough of hustle culture? Daunted by the 10,000-hour rule? Relax: As the French know, it's the best way to be better at everything. In the realm of love, what could be less seductive than someone who's trying to seduce you? Seduction is the art of succeeding without trying, and that's a lesson the French have mastered. We can see it in their laissez-faire parenting, chic style, haute cuisine, and enviable home cooking: they barely seem to be trying, yet the results are world-famous, thanks to a certain je ne sais quoi that is the key to a more creative, fulfilling, and productive life. For fans of both Mark Manson's The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck and Alain de Botton's How Proust Can Change Your Life, philosopher Ollivier Pourriol's The French Art of Not Trying Too Hard draws on the examples of such French legends as Descartes, Stendhal, Rodin, Cyrano de Bergerac and Françoise Sagan to show how to be efficient à la française, and how to effortlessly reap the rewards.

In a decade that featured such legendary hurlers as Sandy Koufax, Bob Gibson, Don Drysdale, and other Hall of Famers, no pitcher won more games than Juan Marichal in the 1960s. His unique, high-kick pitching style was imitated by kids from New York to San Francisco to Santo Domingo, and it is immortalized in a bronze statue outside of the Giants’ current ballpark. Marichal was the first Dominican-born player to play in an All-Star Game and the first elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame, and he won more games than any of his countrymen. And while Dominican and other Latino players have come to dominate many aspects of baseball in recent years, Marichal was a trailblazer in his day, entering the league at a time when Latin American players were routinely discriminated against, underpaid, and presented with numerous obstacles on their journey to the big leagues. In Juan Marichal, Marichal tells the story of his rise from living on a rural farm as a young boy in the Dominican Republic to his status as one of the great pitchers of all time. Along the way, he was enlisted by the son of the country’s dictator to play for the national team, was threatened at gunpoint to throw a game during a tournament in Mexico, fought homesickness as a minor leaguer in rural Indiana, and went head-to-head with some of the greatest pitchers and hitters the game has ever seen.For the first time, Marichal gives his perspective on life as a Latino ballplayer in the 1960s, describes the highs and lows of a 16-year major league career, and explores what the recent influx of Dominicans in the majors has meant to baseball and to his home country. He offers reflections on lingering stereotypes, the impact of steroids, and the general state of the game in the 21st century.

A timely discussion on the impact and importance of integrity. Author Ronald J. Greer: “People today want to live with more depth and authenticity—to be true to who God created them to be. There is a desire to get it right, to live lives of integrity. There is a sense that living with integrity would be to experience greater meaning, purpose, and fulfillment. “But what does integrity mean? What does it involve? And how do we go about doing it? This book is designed to address the issue of integrity in a thoughtful, practical way. It is written from my vantage as a Christian, a minister, and a pastoral counselor. It is for those who want to understand what integrity means, how it can benefit them, and how to apply it to their lives.”

General editor Lloyd J. Ogilvie brings together a team of skilled and exceptional communicators to blend sound scholarship with life-related illustrations. The design for the Preacher's Commentary gives the reader an overall outline of each book of the Bible. Following the introduction, which reveals the author's approach and salient background on the book, each chapter of the commentary provides the Scripture to be exposited. The New King James Bible has been chosen for the Preacher's Commentary because it combines with integrity the beauty of language, underlying Hebrew and Greek textual basis, and thought-flow of the 1611 King James Version, while replacing obsolete verb forms and other archaisms with their everyday contemporary counterparts for greater readability. Reverence for God is preserved in the capitalization of all pronouns referring to the Father, Son, or Holy Spirit. Readers who are more comfortable with another translation can readily find the parallel passage by means of the chapter and verse reference at the end of each passage being exposited. The paragraphs of exposition combine fresh insights to the Scripture, application, rich illustrative material, and innovative ways of utilizing the vibrant truth for his or her own life and for the challenge of communicating it with vigor and vitality.
