This is a great book for school board members, school administrators and teachers to contemplate. Everyone who has a child or teaches them considers himself an expert on education. Yet the best answers to commonly faced challenges are not clear. Should we exclude slower learners from the most challenging classes so the faster learners aren't held back, or does the mix benefit everyone? Should concerns about damaging self esteem prevent us from challenging students who haven't proven themselves fast learners to step up their pace? Should I enroll my "average" child in a highly rated school and hope he will be swept along with the high achievers? Mathews, who is clearly in the "let the kids take their best shot" camp presents the issues clearly and with compassion. Contrary to the opinion of another review this book is as timely today as when it was written in 1996.
