This is not a reactionary, radical reformist volume which advocates the dismantling of education as we know it in favor of untested theories. Rather, Perkins defines a logical system of educational beliefs which are based upon sound research and work toward clearly defined educational goals.
Perkins writes with a clarity and simplicity that is all too rare among educators. He uses no educational jargon without first defining it in an understandable way. Further, he provides a checklist for educational change which will assist concerned parents, educators, and administrators in systematically implementing his recomendations.
In its organization, content, and writing, "Smart Schools" exemplifies all that our education system should foster in our children to prepare them for an active and significant role in the shaping of our world's future. If you are concerned with the quality of our children's education, you must have this book in your library.
