Alan Druckman, a lifelong New Yorker and father of three who retired after a thirty-five-year career as an elementary school teacher and administrator in Queens and the Bronx and is now living on Long Island with his wife of sixty-one years, has completed his book “Reading, Writing, and Murder”: an engagingly written tongue-in-cheek story highlighting the mortal dangers of working and studying in a city school.
What novel presents a realistic, comprehensive, laugh-until-you-almost-pee look at an urban elementary school in a middle-class neighborhood in New York City through the eyes of a retiring principal? The answer is “Reading, Writing, and Murder.”
Here are some of the subjects in the school curriculum:
How to Murder a Teacher in School
How to Conduct an Adulterous Affair
How to Deal with Disruptive Pupils
How to Deal with Complaining Parents and Teachers
How to Dissuade a Pupil Threatening to Commit Suicide
How to Save a Parent Having a Heart Attack
How to be Classified as a Pedophile
How to Celebrate a Principal’s Retirement
How to Reminisce on the Good, the Bad, the Ugly
How to Solve a School Murder

Only someone with thirty-five-and-a-half years as teacher, assistant principal, and principal in New York City elementary schools could tell it like it is.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Alan Druckman’s book is an entertaining must-read for teachers and administrators feeling as though they risk life and limb to perform their educational duties every day.
