No region in the world is immune to the ill effects of a poorly educated populace, and America is no exception. Evidence strongly suggests that there is a direct correlation between educational attainment and quality of life, including everything from economic prosperity to life expectancy itself. Though billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars are spent every year on public education, this has not always translated to better academic performance. And Collins' book clearly shows that we cannot simply buy our way to better educational outcomes. This unfortunate reality affects EVERY American. Now more than ever, educators must identify ways to maximize their use of public dollars. Within this book is a clear message that it cannot be just business as usual. The nation's future is at stake. Read the book! -- Ron McPherson, executive director of finance, Knox County Schools
