"This gem is one of the most important books to come out on American education in years. Paul Bambrick-Santoyo speaks with great credibility, given the tremendous results of low-income students under his leadership. Three cheers to a front-line educator for kicking off a new genre of non-fiction writing in education: a practical guide for dramatic school improvement that proves that children from every background can achieve at high levels when we as adults get our part right."
—Jon Schnur, co-founder and chief executive officer, New Leaders for New Schools, and senior advisor to U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan
"This book superbly describes the change process that leaders can go through with their faculty in order to make data-driven instruction a reality in their schools. You'll also find the rationale and all of the structures for data analysis, scripts of how to analyze student thinking and come up with appropriate re-teaching strategies for weak areas, and precise guidance on how to run effective data meetings. This is the whole package."
—Jon Saphier, founder and president, Research for Better Teaching, and chairman emeritus of Teachers 21
"Paul Bambrick-Santoyo's book is a triple threat to the achievement gap: not only has he presided over dramatic achievement gains at the schools he leads in Newark, New Jersey, but he has helped scores of other schools make similar gains in New York City, Chicago, New Orleans, Oakland, and elsewhere around the country. He has distilled the lessons learned into a brilliant, tightly organized, and highly practical book. Bravo to Paul for an amazing contribution to the field!"
—Kim Marshall, leadership consultant and veteran school principal, author of The Marshall Memo and of Rethinking Teacher Supervision and Evaluation: How to Work Smart, Build Collaboration, and Close the Achievement Gap
Very disappointing. Much of what I read in this book was gathered from research done at Charter schools in Baltimore. Read morePublished 1 month ago by JOHN N COATS
