George A. Goens. Ph.D. served at all levels of education as a teacher, principal, superintendent, as well as an associate professor in a graduate program. He has authored five books and co-authored four others.
George Goens' book is an eye-opening and passionate response to current cultural trends, which threaten to deprive our nation's youth of their ability to self-actualize and achieve the "American Dream." It will enlighten and empower parents, teachers, and all who have the responsibility for nurturing and mentoring the next generation of "response-able" adults.--Barbara Hunt, Retired Elementary School Teacher, Middlebury and Southbury, CT Our greatest responsibility as educators and parents is to raise our children to be responsible, engaged, and independent adults. In his new book, "It's Not My Fault," George Goens addresses the increasing rise of the victim mentality with its debilitating effects on our children, and offers insight to both parents and teachers to guide our young people to "response-able" adulthood. This book is a "must read" read for every parent and educator.--David Larson, Executive Director Emeritus, Connecticut Association of Public School Superintendents What perspective on life and happiness would you want your children and grandchildren (or students if you are an educator) to possess? How will they define happiness and success? What kind of adult will they become: one that is in control of their destiny, has a strong inner character that takes personal responsibility and sets meaningful goals, or one that sees themselves as a victim in life? In our complex age where so much may seem out of one's control, George Goens has written a very important book to guide schools and parents in developing strategies to help children fulfill their maximum potential in life. Goens' life experiences as a teacher, educational leader, academic, philosopher and parent come into focus to provide us a refreshing and compelling model for what schools should be in the modern age. It is a must read for all educators and parents who want their kids to be happy and find meaningful success in life.--Philip A. Streifer, author and consultant George Goens' wisdom and lifelong commitment to education are on stage in this gem of a book as he challenges us to look beyond trends and measurements to what is timeless in education. His words inspire all of us responsible for educating the young with the message that at the true heart of education is a belief that humans have the power to choose, and that this lifelong awareness creates a meaningful and purposeful life.--Emmy Theisen, Educator and Teacher, Wisconsin It's Not My Fault needs to be a required read for every parent and school staff member in the country as Dr. George Goens' deep dive into student accountability, ownership, character, and integrity is simply a must read. Every chapter becomes a tool in the toolbox for those who genuinely care about our next generation.--Joseph Erardi, Superintendent of Schools, Newtown, Connecticut
