Publisher's Summary

Winner of the 2016 Ippy Award - Gold Medal in Education (Commentary/Theory)

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.

This book:

  • Critiques the commonly presented media messages about schooling in America
  • Considers the evidence for why the present generation of American educators has accomplished more than previous generations
  • Evaluates the assumptions driving policies set up to improve schooling
  • Discovers the four essential pillars of the PLC (professional learning community) foundation
  • Lays out the essential elements of the PLC process and common mistakes in implementing that process
