Dr. Van Horn has produced a book that makes a significant contribution to the field of educational research and practice. "Words of Fire" summarizes research findings that challenge current educational practices and presents ample evidence to indicate changes need to be made. Teachers, professors, administrators and policy makers should find this to be a valuable resource. -- Dr. Alan T. Seagren, emeritus professor, Educational Administration, The University of Nebraska, Lincoln.
Several topics...are explained in an understandable and thoughtful fashion. People inside and outside of education will gain valuable insights from this book. * American School Board Journal, April 2009 *
Royal Van Horn has written a most timely, engaging, visionary, and needed book. In the present mean-spirited dark age of mandatory retention, high stakes testing, and negative labeling of students, teachers, and schools, Van Horn's new book represents a renaissance of research based, clear thinking about such challenges as dropout rates, class size, and high-stakes testing. It is a powerful addition to the professional literature. -- William Watson Purkey, professor emeritus of Counselor Education, the University of North Carolina at Greensboro; Co-Founder, International Alliance for Invitational Education
