Editorial Reviews


Julie Wilson dares to turn common sense into an action plan. This is an urgent, important book for all educators and parents.

-- Seth Godin, Author

A refreshing and hopeful perspective on transforming the education system to prepare students for the demands of an unpredictable, unknown, and complex future. Wilson offers tools for educators to develop the necessary habits of mind to conquer wide-scale change.  -- Elise Foster, Founder and President; Co-Author

Julie Wilson is both a visionary and a pragmatist. Her book is a wonderfully clear and concise guide for leaders who seek to navigate the road to educational transformation.
-- Tony Wagner, Author

If you want to understand what it takes to create innovative and lasting change, then forge ahead with The Human Side of Changing Education, and bravely create your own hero′s journey. This is a valuable guide, with practical advice and real-life examples to support you in this very complicated and challenging work.

-- Ann Koufman-Frederick, Chief Academic Officer

Julie Wilson’s advice is spot on: Find your north star, embrace the process of change, and focus on the adults in your system. Every educator needs to not only read this book, but also commit to the journey of change that Wilson has thoughtfully implored us to take.  

-- Ken Kay, CEO; Founding President

If everyone working in U.S. K-12 education were to read this book and put even half of its thinking into practice, we would be well on our way to a far better society. It is timely, visionary, and relentlessly practical – a rare combination. Discover what our future could look like if enough of us dare to make it happen.
-- Andy Calkins, Director

Julie Wilson has emerged as an important thought-leader among those seeking to transform America’s outdated, industrial model of education. With this important book, she has produced an invaluable resource designed to make sense of the myriad initiatives crowding the educational landscape. Concise, thoughtful, and based on a comprehensive review of the field, this book will serve as a catalyst for your own thinking, and for your school’s transformation.

-- Andy Willemsen, Director

This book is a call to action. Drawing on proven wisdom, Julie Wilson sets out a path for championing change within the education system

-- Michael Bungay Stanier, Author; Senior Partner

At long last, Julie Wilson′s thinking about how to transform school culture and teacher mindsets is now in print for the global education community to consider within their individual school innovation plans. The Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning has greatly benefited from Julie′s on-site workshops and we are grateful to now have Julie′s wisdom for immediate reference when she is not available in-person.

-- Glenn Whitman, Director; Co-Author

The desire for an evolution in education has reached a fevered pitch over the last few years. Amidst this forward momentum, Julie Wilson’s book serves as a useful pause button; a reminder that education, at its core, has been and always should be a human-centered enterprise. It is worth noting how useful it is to have someone point out something that, once a light is shone, seems so obvious. I thank Julie – and this book – for being that beacon.

-- Chris Jackson, Chief Communications Officer
