Editorial Reviews

Review

Educational entrepreneurs are proving that the calcified delivery system of public schooling can be shaken up and retooled for the twenty-first century. Hess and his colleagues look at the phenomenon from every angle in this rich assortment of essays. Some are descriptive, others draw fascinating analogies to other industries but all are full of useful data and provocative arguments. This is a book that provides plenty of fuel for discussions about where school reform is headed. --Nelson Smith, President, National Alliance for Public Charter Schools

If you believe America s schools can be changed for the better, then here s a book for you. Hess and his colleagues explore a new breed of educational revolutionaries and the difficult contexts in which they labor. There is a bit of everything between these covers, from the risk and messiness of it all to the promise. --Chris Whittle, Founder and CEO, Edison Schools, and author of Crash Course

Educational entrepreneurs are playing an increasingly visible role in shaping the future of education in America. This insightful book offers a window into how this movement has evolved, the hurdles it faces, and its growing impact on our nation's schools. --Michelle Rhee, CEO and President, The New Teacher Project
