"This work demonstrates how a solid base of quantitative research can be woven into a sophisticated but highly readable book linking practice and policy at the school level. The authors, in clear straightforward language, interpret the environmental and organizational constraints and supports to pupil learning by drawing from analyses of hundreds of interviews, a large national survey of educators, and a number of school ethnographies."- Don Adams, Professor, University of Pittsburgh
