"We Can Do More and Better with Less: Education Can Work", 2019 Edition, demonstrates with specific details how education can:
1. Do more and better with less. Money is not the problem. It never was the problem and
it's not the problem now.
2. Understand systems and their significance in driving results.
3. Restructure the current 19th Century education system with a 21st Century one
designed for success of all, win-win-win for students, teachers and taxpayers.

4. Produce high achievement for virtually all students.

And much more.

Thomas F. Kelly, Ph.D. is a lifelong educator with over 50 years of experience from pre-kindergarten through the doctoral level as a teacher and administrator. Dr. Kelly's academic training includes a bachelor's degree and five graduate degrees. Professional experience includes working poor and minority, middle class, affluent students and adults.

The only limitation to people's ability to learn is how many opportunities they have to learn. Dr. Kelly believes that if we rate the ability of all students to learn and the capacity of the present system to teach on a scale from 1 to 10,the student's ability is 10 and the system's capacity to teach is 1.

JUST FOR THE SUMMER by Laurel Lorraine Lancer, Ph.D

Laurel's disturbing and abusive childhood, followed by a poor marriage, resulted in a month-long visit to a mental hospital, where in the 1960s, the use of electroshock and insulin shock therapy was prevalent. With humor and pathos, Laurel poignantly describes her insulin and shock treatments, the insensitivity of the hospital staff, and the numerous psychiatric problems of various patients. The author, now a PhD. in psychology, relates her memoirs with insight and compassion. In addition to the mistreatment of mental patients in the 50s and 60s, the accounts of various psychiatric disturbances will be of particular interest to students of human nature. Similar to "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," Laurel's story of her thirty days of treatment provides an expose of the pitifully inadequate treatment for mental health issues at that time.

Dr. Lancer retired from teaching and counseling. She earned advanced degrees in higher education and psychology. She has two children. As she grew older she wanted to tell her story. Currently Dr. Lancer is writing and illustrating children's books. This is her first adult book

GO ASK THE DEAD by Frank Tropea

This new book is about a love-affair gone dangerously wrong between a very psychic girl, Amanda Mannings, and a Gettysburg Civil War ghost named William who was a young, rather handsome Confederate officer when he, like many thousands of others with him were, killed in that infamous battle.

She becomes obsessed totally with him and his paranormal love-making skills. However, finally when they disagree on something very important, he turns violent and abuses her both sexually and allows his ghostly fellow soldiers liberties with her, too.

And she's pregnant at this time, supposedly by Craig, a normal young man who was briefly Amanda's husband.

Can Amanda finally defeat the evil dead who surround her and want to kill Craig and possibly herself, too?

This is about finding the strength within oneself to defeat evil once and for all.

Frank Tropea graduated from Harvard in 1984 with a major in Literature and minor in Psychology. He became a member of Mensa and Intertel. He writes both novels an poetry.
