"This book is a godsend to teachers--written by teachers conversant with classroom life who are trying to create reforms that enable fellow teachers to get the help they need."--Deborah Meier, winner of the MacArthur Award, founder of Central Park East School, author of In Schools We Trust

"I wish somebody had given me this book a couple of years ago, to read during my sophomore or junior year at Harvard. I don't know anyone here who wants to be a teacher. If I had read this book then, and if I had understood that teaching can provide the opportunity to be part of a changing profession, I may have considered a career in teaching. Truthfully, I've always thought of teaching as a career with limitedpossibility for progression. Would I really want to teach for more than a couple of years? I never considered teaching to be an opportunity for making a significant difference at a universal level. People who think about teaching and then discard the thought should be given the chance to read this book. It will change the way they perceive the profession."--Abby Bucuvalas, Harvard College Senior"[A] well-researched, thoughtful proposal for an overhaul of America's public education system."--Publishers Weekly
