In Structural Deficiencies in the School System, Trani and Irvine once again demonstrate how small, student-centered school systems can not only meet the learning needs of the students they serve, but provide fantastic opportunities for children to have long-term success by obtaining rigorous foundational skills. -- Ken Haptonstal, Ph.D., superintendent, Garfield County School District, Colorado
Structural Deficiencies in the School System: How Grade Level, Comprehensive High Schools, and Big Districts Cause Student Failure is a compelling, sharp, and ringing indictment of the bloated and misguided state into which many of the schools in this nation have fallen. In this text, Randy Trani and Robert Irvine leverage their substantial experience and know-how in the educational space to provide an insightful look into where so many schools are going wrong, coming up short, or just missing the point altogether. Indeed, having served and worked as teachers, principals, and superintendents in schools across the country, the authors provide a crisp and unique insiders' perspective in a space that demands more insight and clarity. In so doing, Trani and Irvine illuminate certain facets of the modern American school system-both good and bad-that desperately need the type of attention and focus that they receive in Structural Deficiencies in the School System. -- Quanyu Huang, Ph.D., director of Asian/Asian American Studies, Miami University
