The circle : a novel by Dave Eggers ( Book )
19 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,909 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Circle is the exhilarating new novel from Dave Eggers, best-selling author of A Hologram for the King, a finalist for the National Book Award. When Mae Holland is hired to work for the Circle, the world's most powerful internet company, she feels she's been given the opportunity of a lifetime. The Circle, run out of a sprawling California campus, links users' personal emails, social media, banking, and purchasing with their universal operating system, resulting in one online identity and a new age of civility and transparency. As Mae tours the open-plan office spaces, the towering glass dining facilities, the cozy dorms for those who spend nights at work, she is thrilled with the company's modernity and activity. There are parties that last through the night, there are famous musicians playing on the lawn, there are athletic activities and clubs and brunches, and even an aquarium of rare fish retrieved from the Marianas Trench by the CEO. Mae can't believe her luck, her great fortune to work for the most influential company in the world--even as life beyond the campus grows distant, even as a strange encounter with a colleague leaves her shaken, even as her role at the Circle becomes increasingly public. What begins as the captivating story of one woman's ambition and idealism soon becomes a heart-racing novel of suspense, raising questions about memory, history, privacy, democracy, and the limits of human knowledge"--

Teachers have it easy : the big sacrifices and small salaries of America's teachers by Daniel Moulthrop ( Book )
7 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 848 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Many teachers today must work two or more jobs to survive; they can't afford to buy homes or raise families. Why are they paid so poorly? How is this related to student achievement? And how can we find ways to treat them like the professionals they are? This book examines how bad policy intersects with teachers' lives. Interweaving teachers' voices with facts and figures, the book is a clear-eyed view of the harsh realities of public school teaching, without any chicken-soup success stories. With a look at the problems of recruitment and retention, the myths of short workdays and endless summer vacations, the realities of the work week, and shocking examples of how society views America's teachers, it explores why salary reform may be the best way to improve public education and examines how innovative compensation plans can transform schools.--From publisher description
