"Peg Tyre lays out the fundaments of a good school--and a good education--clearly and without bias. How I wish I'd had this book when my husband and I were choosing an elementary school for our daughter!"--Peggy Orenstein, author of the New York Times-bestselling Cinderella Ate My Daughter
"Journalist Peg Tyre's new book...condenses decades of education research to help parents make better choices about selecting schools for their children."--USA Today
"Tyre offers solutions. With a splash of history, the author discusses pedagogies, as well as what to look for in a good preschool teacher...[and] provides respectful ways for approaching—or changing—the system...This is not an indictment of teachers, but rather an eye-opening tool for parental involvement."--Kirkus
