Yo! Joey! by Joseph P. Batory is a collection of colorful career highlights from one of America’s most outspoken school superintendents. Joe Batory takes his readers on a whirlwind ride of multiple confrontations and wondrous joys in a book about public education like none other. Hostile taxpayer groups, State governors, corporate America, the news media, the Washington (DC) and Pennsylvania bureaucracies, clerics, Nazis and even Howard Stern…Joe Batory publicly battled all of them during his 15 year run as superintendent of one of Pennsylvania’s largest and most diverse school systems. His narration takes turns being funny, irreverent, angry and tender, and is often didactic. It bares the soul of a leader.
