Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In 1986, a group of Milwaukee-area teachers, frustrated with the pace of education reform, created the quarterly journal Rethinking Schools. Since its inception, the journal has gained a reputation for insightful writing about some of the most controversial issues in contemporary education. A mix of thought-provoking essays, interviews, and practical suggestions culled from the journal, this book addresses the most pressing concerns of reformers in five different subject areas: "Multiculturalism and Antibias Education," "Rethinking the Curriculum," "Testing and Tracking," "National Policy Concerns," and "Teachers, Students and Parents." In addition to providing sound advice for dealing with these issues on a day-to-day basis, the book also includes resource and material lists in each chapter. The contributors range from national education reform figures and activists to current classroom teachers. Their refreshing and accessible writing not only advocates reform but also demands public accountability. An intelligent, thoughtful work, this compilation takes a small but profound step toward liberating the public school system from the dreary, ineffective mandates that have ruled the education field for decades. Kathleen Hughes


First as a teacher, and now as a United States Senator, I have seen how the spark of learning, when ignited, can take a child from any background to a life of creativity and accomplishment. Rethinking Schools: An Agenda for Change is a forum for discussion and debate on how to achieve these goals in America. -- Senator Paul Wellstone

The only thing that cuts through all the jargon and addresses the real issues. -- Jonathan Kozol, author of Savage Inequalities --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
