ers. Child abuse and child neglect is rampant; yet no one dares to speak out. In the hands of the last great bastion, there are no heroes.Emotional, physical, or sexual, abuse from teachers and administrators is endemic in US schools. Worse yet, it’s an epidemic that has gone largely undetected because it isn't reported and students and parents who do report it aren't taken seriously and often suffer retaliation.It’s time to acknowledge the hard fact that the guilt for the epidemic of abuse and neglect belongs to the teachers and administrators themselves. Avoiding the issue often feels professionally safer than tackling it, but looking the other way simply guarantees that the abuse will continue.The Last Bastion provides a new language for children and parents to help them understand child abuse and child neglect in the school environment. Types of abuse and neglect are defined along with a lengthy discussion of tactics used to protect the perpetrator and flip the blame back to the student and family. Bottom-up change is outlined with a call for students, parents, and the community to begin a dialog, speak out and be heard.In The Last Bastion, clinical psychologist Dr. Dianne Callin takes a controversial approach to a problem too dire to take lightly. Dr. Callin’s book is a desperate call to action for teachers, administrators, parents, students, and politicians across the country: it’s time to tackle the abuse in our backyards head-on. The future of our country may very well depend on it.
