Editorial Reviews


Employers need energetic thinkers with real life skills and positive attitudes who can contribute, and who don't act as if "work" is a dirty-four-letter-word. For the first time in American history, this generation is less educated than its parents. Education has to change its methods so that learning is enjoyable again, when the potential and interests of each student are addressed. This hands-on, real life, proficiency based curriculum can provide just what employers need-leadership and ownership skills-that will change students' attitudes, and in turn benefit them and businesses plus build a stronger America. (Judith Barnes, President WorkSmart Staffing Greenville, South Carolina)

This book is practical and offers easily available lesson and project outlines which can be adapted and differentiated for all ages and abilities. The authors passionately create a shining example that can be beamed out to the world. Here's to a new and joyous education system. (Penny Moon, CEO A Quiet Place Ltd. Liverpool, United Kingdom)

This book cuts to the heart of the matter, of what it really means to "leave no child behind." The truth about institutional practices such as testing, grade points, and grade levels is discussed and challenged. Anyone who cares about the future of our children and rebuilding our public school education system should read this book. (Jacqueline Patterson, Director of District Student Support Wisconsin Department of Public instruction Milwaukee, Wisconsin)

Truly leaving "no child behind" will require finally addressing the individual needs, interests, and aptitudes of each young person in our public schools. Eldon Lee and Mary Gale Budzisz provide a compelling framework to transform schools from the current "fit-the-mold-or-else" model into centers of learning for all children. The time is now! (Juanita Doyon, education activist, Spanaway, Washington)

About the Author

Mary Gale has spent half of her lifetime in a public school classroom teaching students skills to enable them to become good citizens who make valued contributions to their world. She passionately believes that teachers must find, create and adapt materials, methods, and techniques to promote success for every student.
Eldon 'Cap' Lee headed for Milwaukee WI to take on the challenge of making a difference in the lives of children through the profession of education after graduating from Eastern Michigan University. As he realized that schools were designed for the few, his passion drove him to a career working with those students who needed him the most, those who were not among the elite and were left out of a shattered education system.
