Push Has Come to Shove

That means he’s making a difference. In this book, his priority is to help kids who don’t have the advantage of going to his school, Capital Prep.

Push Has Come to Shove

“Have you been to a school lately? Have you sat through the six hours and forty-five minutes of excruciating tedium we send our kids to every day? When we ask our kids, “What’d you do in school today?” and they mumble, “Nothin’,” they’re telling the truth.” Steve Perry is like no other educator you’ve ever met. He “gets it.” He understands why some parents are downright panicked about what’s going on in their kids’ classrooms, and how other parents, whose kids supposedly attend the “good” schools, still fear that their children are falling behind. As Principal of one of the best performing schools in America -- one that sends 100% of its mostly minority students to four-year colleges -- Perry delights in poking the system. Present him with a “truth” about how education is supposed to work and – count on it – he’ll show it to be false. Dictatorial teacher’s unions despise Steve Perry. So do lazy teachers. So do entrenched, unimaginative school boards. So do reactionary “curriculum guardians” who – as a lure to get kids reading – cling to the same old stodgy texts. “That’s okay,” say Perry. That means he’s making a difference. In this book, his priority is to help kids who don’t have the advantage of going to his school, Capital Prep. He wants to save your kid, and the kid next door, and the kid down the street from getting a typical third-rate American education. If you’re a parent who has worried recently about how depressed your child seems when he dresses for school in the morning…or how little of what happens during the school day seems to sink into her brain… or how much of your child’s homework is busywork, you need this book. If you’re a teacher who is putting your heart and soul into the job but are surrounded by colleagues who are “phoning it in,” you need this book. If you’re a committed, forward-thinking principal who wants to get rid of the faculty bad apples, but are continually stymied by Mafia-style teachers-unions, you need this book. *If you’re a citizen who worries about the $1 trillion-plus GDP loss that America suffers every year because our system of education doesn’t measure up, you need this book. In this solution-oriented manifesto, Steve Perry covers the full range of issues holding back today’s students. He shows parents how to find great teachers (and get rid of the bad ones)…how to make readers out of kids who hate to read…how to make the school curriculum thrilling rather than sleep-inducing…how to conduct an all-important education “home audit”… how to “e-organize” if school boards and administrators aren’t getting the message…how to build a “school of the future,” and much more. The era of third-rate education is over. Steve Perry isn’t going to let the fools and scoundrels get away with it any longer. Push has come to shove! From the Hardcover edition.

When Push Came to Shove

When push came to shove, metaphorically speaking of course, (or should I say when Chaz came to Khylee), Khylee makes a very shocking decision that goes against everything she believes in.

When Push Came to Shove

A push is similar to a nudge or a slight encouragement whereas a shove is more aggressive or a strong suggestion. However, the unthinkable or unimaginable can be done if the issue becomes so horrific that you have to do it. When push came to shove, metaphorically speaking of course, (or should I say when Chaz came to Khylee), Khylee makes a very shocking decision that goes against everything she believes in. Usually the phrase goes: if push comes to shove; well push has a name. It's Chaz and shove has a name and her name is Khylee. So, when Chaz came to Khylee, it felt right but it was wrong on so many levels and she fought her feelings for him with everything that she had but to no avail. He only presented the opportunity of an outlet or a friendship that they both longed for. How do you stay married to a man that ignores you? Do you stay because of the 8.2 million dollar debt free estate? Do you stay because all material things are at your finger tips, house help at your disposal and more money than you can shake a stick at? (Shake a stick at? Where does that saying come from anyway?) How do you love a man who's never home, never validates you or makes you feel necessary, wanted or important? How do you make yourself love someone who refuses to love you back? Well, Harvey stayed married to Khylee after that horrible incident because he knew that he could take care of her but only out of obligation. Sometimes Khylee wished he'd never bothered. When someone comes along and makes you feel alive, then what? Do you lean toward love or loyalty? Should you apologize for feeling human? Do you repent for being happy?

In Push Comes to Shove, Maud Lavin examines these new images of aggressive women and how they affect women's lives.

Push Comes to Shove

The new celebration of women's aggression in contemporary culture, from Kill Bill and Prime Suspect to the artists group Toxic Titties. In the past, more often than not, aggressive women have been rebuked, told to keep a lid on, turn the other cheek, get over it. Repression more than aggression was seen as woman's domain. But recently there's been a noticeable cultural shift. With growing frequency, women's aggression is now celebrated in contemporary culture—in movies and TV, online ventures, and art. In Push Comes to Shove, Maud Lavin examines these new images of aggressive women and how they affect women's lives. Aggression, says Lavin, need not entail causing harm to another; we can think of it as the use of force to create change—fruitful, destructive, or both. And over the past twenty years, contemporary culture has shown women seizing this power. Lavin chooses provocative examples to explore the complexity of aggression, including the surfer girls in Blue Crush, Helen Mirren as Jane Tennison in Prime Suspect, the homicidal women in Kill Bill, and artist Marlene McCarty's mural-sized Murder Girls. Women need aggression and need to use it consciously, Lavin writes. With Push Comes to Shove, she explores the crucial questions of how to manifest aggression, how to represent it, and how to keep open a cultural space for it.
