Improving Our Public Schools

Barnett Berry
The list author says: "Teaching 2030: What We Must Do for Our Students and Our Public Schools… Now and in the Future is the product of a remarkable intellectual journey that I undertook alongside twelve highly effective K-12 teachers from across our country. Our work frames a hopeful future in which every public school student in America has access to qualified, caring, and effective teachers. Please visit www.teaching2030.org to learn more--we've posted a four-minute animated video that shares the book's main themes. Here is a list of related books."

Schoolteacher: A Sociological Study
Schoolteacher: A Sociological Study
"Sociologist Dan Lortie points out how teaching’s “egg-crate” structure historically has isolated teachers from their colleagues… and reinforced a culture in which everyone tries not to stand out. Teaching 2030 advocates for a very different approach to the profession, encouraging cooperation and innovation."

Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us
"Pink demonstrates how current performance-pay schemes, which focus on a “narrow band of circumstances” & “if-then rewards,” typically undermine or even destroy creativity. We think it’s possible to create pay systems that are results-oriented but are also comprehensive & rigorous structures that can help inspire innovation & spread teaching expertise."

The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference
"Malcolm Gladwell describes how social epidemics can take hold quickly and unexpectedly, behaving in atypical and often counterintuitive ways. Our forward-looking team of Teaching 2030 co-authors is hopeful about the possibilities of a tipping point. We hope to organize a critical mass of Americans around a reform agenda that will finally produce fundamental improvements in teaching and learning!"
