In this thought-provoking and eloquent volume, John Goodlad speaks to all of us who are faced with making critical choices for our nation’s children, whether it be in the election arena, our local schools, or within the personal setting of the family. His discussion covers some of our most basic and enduring concerns as well as the pressing and controversial issues of the day, such as school choice, charter schools, home schooling, and the privatization of schooling.
John I. Goodlad is president of the Institute for Educational Inquiry and Cofounder of the Center for Educational Renewal at the University of Washington.
"He offers ample doses of wisdom and gentle guidance during this era of strident, often unfair, criticism of public education."
"Offers an uplifting message about the quality of our schools and what we must all do to reaffirm our belief in their mission."
"In this most reflective, almost spiritual, book, he takes another step forward in his leadership role in American education."
—The School Administrator
