In The Press

Breaking the Mold of School Instruction and Organization includes important ideas on teaching, leadership, and partnerships that will motivate students to learn and improve schools in wonderful ways. In chapter after chapter, the authors show that teachers and administrators have choices between the conventional vs. the creative, the isolated vs. the connected, and between old ways vs. new ways to organize schools, engage families and communities, and excite students about school and about learning. So many good ideas—tested and in practice—await others to see the point.
