In Induction Malfunction: Leaving Teachers Behind, Dr. Leonid Chernyak, utilizing his investigative reporting skills, showcases what happens to novice teachers, specifically at a Florida charter middle school, when a mentored induction program is purposefully and neglectfully disbanded. The study - which took almost an entire school year to chronicle, research, and exhaustively reference - is seen through the points of view of three novice teachers who, despite efforts to (a) collaborate, (b) grow professionally together, and (c) take lessons learned from the first year into the next, witness first hand (a) how easily promises made can be broken, (b) how easily the building of collaborative bridges can be burned, and (c) how hard incorporating highly regarded education theories into practice can be. Dr. Leonid Chernyak is a former member of the Society of Professional Journalists and the National Honor Society. He has appeared twice in Who's Who Among American High School Students and was honored by the Florida Department of Education for his writing. At the University of Florida, he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in print journalism and a Master of Arts degree in Mass Communication. At Argosy University, he earned an Education Specialist degree and a Doctor of Education degree, both in curriculum and instruction. Dr. Leonid Chernyak has, so far, worked as a freelance reporter, a substitute teacher, a language arts tutor, a translator, a collector, and a customer relations representative. His philosophy of life revolves around breaking routine, a team spirit, thinking outside the box, questioning everything, reading between the lines, standing up against the few who rule the many, not limiting yourself to others' criticisms, and taking a world view of everything. His first book, Breaking Routine: A cosmic outlook on our comic world, was published in 2005.
