School : Questions is a series of concise, pointed texts grounded in an embrace of and a belief that an excellent public school experience is the right of every child and the responsibility of every community. Each book is designed as a sharp intervention—relevant and hard-hitting—in one or another of the most urgent and necessary discussions concerning the problems and possibilities with public schools today. Each of these compact texts can be deployed as a catalyst in the urgent work of reframing the debates swirling around (and mystifying or clouding) public educational policy and practice today. Each is small by design, something to slip comfortably into your pocket or your backpack next to the water and Vitamin C, and something to read on the train or the bus on your way to class, a school board meeting, city council hearing, or a public demonstration.
