Book Review: 'A Matter of Panache'

By

'A Matter of Panache' by Debra SandersI don't usually do this, but this book is the most compelling book I've read in years and I wanted to let you know about it.

"A Matter of Panache", a unique memoir written by Debra Sanders, is an adventure story that takes readers from the most remote corners of Alaska into the isolated canyon lands of southeastern Utah and onto an army post in Colorado. It is also a fascinating, sometimes shocking portrayal of some of public education's greatest triumphs and most shameful failures.

Debra Sanders spent nearly 25 years championing for the rights of children with disabilities in some of our nation's most challenging schools.  An award-winning educational psychologist, Sanders was loved and respected by students, their families, the teachers who struggled to help them and the administrators who were in charge of it all.  But, in 2003, Sanders was involved in a work-related auto accident that left her with a traumatic brain injury-one initially diagnosed as mild.  However, Debra's head injury caused changes in her skills and her personality which were both subtle and profound, ultimately resulting in her own humiliated exit from a career that had shaped her life and that had driven her passions.

Anyone who cares about children, has been touched by the effects of injury to the brain-theirs or someone they know, anyone who has ever had to dig down and grit their teeth during times of enormous stress and/or adversity and anyone who enjoys a provocative story that makes them think and question both themselves and what goes on in our schools (and minds!) will find this a worthwhile read.
