Teaching 2030 might appear to be a book for teachers or educational reformers or policy-makers, and it is, but it is also much more than this. It's one of the most important books of our time and it's one everyone should read. We cannot create a healthy, just, and restorative future without the bedrock of good schooling and visionary, relevant teaching. The collaborative nature of this book (it's written by 12 people!) is exactly what the future holds for all of us, and the clear, forward-thinking, reasonable, practical, and yet visionary nature of this book provides a blueprint. Always steering clear of the perpetual either/ors in the educational reform debates raging in the public sphere, the reader is invited to think deeply and clearly about the stakes, the challenges, and the opportunities for creating the right educational future for our children and the world.

This book will be required reading in the M.Ed. and M.A. programs in humane education that we offer at the Institute for Humane Education ([...]).

Bravo to the authors for their teaching and their writing. They have shared with all of us perhaps the most cogent vision of educational possibility and the path toward its unfolding.

The authors have collaborated to present positive education reform necessary for the success of public education. Change does not have to be a negative word. They have coined the term "teacherpreneur" as a progressive form of teaching professionalism. Of course techology is a big part of our education future and we better change quickly in order to keep pace. It made me realize that 2030 is not that far away and I need to begin making changes now in order to be a player in the future of our education system. What began as a quick read became a thought provoking challenge to attitudes about education as it evolves to reinvent the public school system into a program of study that is excellent for all students.
I was only going to read a chapter at a time but could not put it down. This is not a doom and gloom look at our future. It is a presentation of the best ideas for our future written by some of the best individuals currently in education.

Oh my gosh...finally a book that hits the nail on the head! Our current educational system is in crisis and unless we really look at how society is changing and what we NEED to do to educate our kids for those changes, we will continue to be regurgitating the same old problems... Students are unprepared for the real world because we are a nation that thinks that if a student can pass a standardized test, that shows their worth as an individual. We need to get back to teaching kids how to think , how to apply their knowledge to work on critical issues facing our world. We need to treat teaching in a professional way and not just certify warm bodies to babysit our kids. We need to value the contributions that teachers are making to think out of the box to help make lessons relevant to students. Most of all, we need to see that there are bigger societal problems that our kids are facing and until those basic needs are met, they will not value education. This book gives realistic solutions of things we can to to make our educational system meet the demands of current change.

This book has a very interesting outlook on the future of teaching. It does a great job of reassuring me that what I am currently doing/feeling as a teacher is "the norm" but it also helps me to see what my future career could hold. It has some very lofty goals for the future of teaching but it also provides a lot of resources as to how those goals can be met. I think it would be a great read for any teacher who is truly looking at changing from the old teaching methods of lectures and drill and kill to something a little more fitting for our 21st century students. It is a bit long winded in parts, and exceptionally wordy, but an otherwise interesting read.
