Editorial Reviews

Review

"Rooted in improving student achievement, the book shows how strategy for developing people overlays with strategy for developing rigorous college ready curricula."
—Teachers College Record

"This important new book clearly and comprehensively addresses the new work in school reform that is changing the face of human resources in school systems."

-- From the Foreword by Carl A. Cohn, Professor and Co-Director, Urban Leadership Program, Claremont Graduate University

"All the reorganization and restructuring in the world cannot compensate for poorly selected and developed personnel. Allan R. Odden provides future education leaders a comprehensive foundation for ensuring that school systems recruit, select, retain, and develop educators capable of meeting the challenges of high-stakes schooling."

-- Daniel L. Duke, Professor of Educational Leadership, University of Virginia

I picked up this book in a year when some reports described segregation in school assignment as having reached the highest level in four decades, and when deficiencies in school funding seemed to be becoming only more difficult to remedy. While these serious systemic problems deserve all of our attention, I am sure I am not the only one who hopes for smaller improvements that can be started closer to home in the meantime. As the subtitle implies, “Human Capital” approaches to education refer to sets of practices and support structures meant to boost educational attainment by directly helping the people who make schools work – teachers, principals, and all varieties of support staff - to maximize their professional capabilities, individually and as groups, often with little direct support from higher levels of government.

Odden’s book is the wrong place to look for historical context or other narratives that would be useful for a newcomer to U.S. education, but for the intended audience, its approach is simple and to-the-point. Chapters are organized topically, and outside of a few shared themes there is relatively little to knot the book together. Odden stresses the importance of high-level goals to harmonize human resource policies across each of the different categories he explores, from teacher recruitment to licensure, from testing systems to professional development, and everything in between, while exploring strategies that are already being undertaken by districts and schools around the country.

Other books say more. Odden does good research and in a revolutionary in education economics. how to really achieve more (research based at University of Wisconsin) increase student achievement by restructuring using the same amount of money, not asking for more. I expected this to be just as good, and it fell short of my expectations.
