Format: Paperback
The ideal to build a better school system drives many thinkers to revamp it for a better system tomorrow. "Education Unbound: The Promise and Practice of Greenfield Schooling" is a discussion from Frederick M. Hess aimed at discussing the state of education, saying that modern America's education problems could dwell in the very foundation of the system. Calling for a reboot of the system to start from scratch, Hess gives scholarly thought and opinion, making "Education Unbound" a fascinating and very highly recommended read that shouldn't be missed by education administrators.

Format: Paperback
Change in education is often reduced to minor tweaking, or engineered retrofitting of an adaptation. This often boils down to much ado about nothing, and it rarely changes what happens in classrooms, in the long term.

The top option for all educators involved in change is the greenfields option. Tabula rasa. Start on a clean slate, if that were possible, in education.

Hess has written a ground-breaking book that is very relevant to me at present. Hess's book shows what can be done, and what needs to be considered. This should be compulsory reading for Western Australian school communities entering, or wanting to commence, the Independent Public Schools program.

At the last minute, I had to change my schedule and realized that I needed the book sooner than I thought. I became quite concerned about this because the date to receive the book would be 3 weeks later. I contacted the seller and asked could they send it within a week and they did. I am so grateful and so very relieved. They are wonderful and reliable. I would definitely order from them again and would highly recommend them to other college students.
