I was hoping for more from this book. It fell short of my expectations in many ways. Again, I do not disagree with any of the rules, but I felt like this was a simplistic treatment of a worthy subject written by someone with an obvious chip on his shoulder that does not allow for a realistic portrayal of public education.
I like the ideas, and wish we lived in the world that Clark Aldrich aspires to, and although some individuals and families may be willing to break the mold of the education SYSTEM which is so embedded and self-perpetuating, it is hard to see how the system can really be transformed. Can it really be changed from within, I doubt it, and from without...impossible.
A recommended read for all educators and parents who are concerned about the process of education and not just about the outcome.
