Whatever he writes is grounded in deep experience and respect for students, parents, and teachers.
Peter is especially concerned with the social and emotional well-being of his students.
That puts him out of the mainstream today, where the only thing that matters is test scores.

He cares too much about kids to command the attention of the powers that be.
That says a lot about where we are today.
We are fortunate to have someone with his wisdom regularly speaking out about the issues.
