Condition: Used: Good
Comment: This book is not too bad not too good. This is a used book, the condition is considered good because it is still readable. Some pages may be folded as book markers and some pages may have writings or highlighting. The book overall may be a bit beat up due to it being used and read.

Editorial Reviews

Review

“In the K–12 arena, I recommend Jack Schneider’s Beyond Test Scores: A Better Way to Measure School Quality for an approach that gets us past the testing charade and reintroduces some of the values we used to associate with ‘good’ schools.”John Warner, Inside Higher Ed

“Everyone cares about ‘good’ schools but, as Schneider makes painfully clear in this well-written book, almost no one agrees on what constitutes a ‘good’ school. By broadening the story to talk about what we mean when we discuss school quality, he makes a critical contribution to policy, discourse, and the public good. This is a great book about an important subject that gets at the heart of American inequality.”
Tressie McMillan Cottom, author of Lower Ed

“In this engaging, provocative, and at times inspiring book, Jack Schneider not only asks how we can go beyond standard measures of scholastic achievement―he details an approach that is at once original and practical.”
Howard Gardner, author of The App Generation

“A clear-eyed, thoughtful step forward in an endeavor everyone should care about: finding out more about how our schools are doing.”
Anya Kamenetz, author of The Test

“In this thoughtful and thorough account, Schneider writes about issues that are critical to the future of education and our efforts to ensure that all students have access to good schooling. For those who are ready to move beyond the polarized debates over standardized testing, this book will be enlightening and a breath of fresh air.”
Pedro Noguera, author of Schooling for Resilience

“In this important book, Schneider asks us to reconsider the purpose of schools and how we evaluate them. He reminds us that public schools are a public good, and that their original purpose was to foster the development of good citizens.”
Diane Ravitch, author of Reign of Error

“By rooting the discussion in what we value, [Schneider] creates a true framework for making informed choices, challenging the ‘failing schools’ narrative by putting test scores in their proper, limited place.”
John Warner, Chicago Tribune

Jack Schneider is an Associate Professor of Education at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, where he leads the Beyond Test Scores Project. An award-winning scholar and teacher, his work broadly explores the influence of history, culture, and rhetoric in education policy. The author of four books, Dr. Schneider has explored why particular ideas gain policy traction, how public perception of schools takes shape, why education reform so often fails, and how organizations improve. He writes frequently about education in outlets like the Atlantic, the New York Times and the Washington Post, and (along with Jennifer Berkshire) is co-host of the educational policy podcast "Have You Heard."
