Product Description

The attacks educators face are blatantly unfair. In fact, contrary to popular belief, today’s educators are the greatest generation of educators in American history. But, at a time when the stakes for students have never been higher, there’s still a great deal more that needs to be done to promote student success.

Explore the state of education today. In this thought-provoking book, the author presents a compelling case for why contemporary American educators are the greatest generation in history. He carefully explains why current national reform policies have failed and presents specific steps policymakers, administrators, and teachers must take to transform American schools to meet student needs in the 21st century.
