Interesting book, but Wilson spends most the time describing educational intervention programs that don't work, why they don't work and why the government spends so much money on them.
I was hoping for more in-depth information on methods that are effective in changing behavior. These experiments are briefly described before moving on to the next popular program that doesn't work.
However, I would recommend it to parents, teachers, school board members, political leaders and anyone with a stake in the effectiveness of institutionalized education.
No simple to follow "secrets to success". Just all the pieces you need to put in place if you want to change yourself.
