Where does education happen? In classrooms. Teachers can provide the ultimate reform of education and teachers can be the ultimate reformers of education. Still, teachers cannot create all of the needed improvements in education alone. Input from, involvement from, ideas from, and participation from many other people can combine with what only teachers know about education to create the educational improvements which are sought year after year. School administrators, parents, guardians, school board members, community members, community organizations, politicians and other people can join in a grass-roots effort which agrees on a shared purpose for schools and on a way to improve schools so the purpose of a school - to cause learning - is realized.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Dr. Keen Babbage gets it. We are at a point in history in which aspects of American life, such as economics, political decision making, and education, cannot be decided by bureaucrats. Reform Doesn't Work is a wonderful grass roots guide as to how we can improve American schools, one school and one student at a time. -- Don McNay, syndicate financial columnist for Huffington Post and author of the best-selling book, "Wealth Without Wall Street"
Tackling educational reform in a straightforward manner, Dr. Keen Babbage, lays the foundation for successful reforms in the classrooms of today-using logic and common sense as his cornerstones! Incorporating these too often overlooked ideas, Dr. Babbage's newest publication, Reform Doesn't Work is sure to become a reform manual for educators at any level. -- Jim Thomas, retired principal, Bryan Station Middle School, Lexington, Kentucky
Finally there is a book whose common sense approach and delineated evidence presents a solution to education reform. Is it political? Religious? No, it's you! In Reform Doesn't Work, Dr. Keen Babbage implores us to empower every stakeholder-the people that matter in our students' worlds-to cause learning day in and day out. Only then will we have a revolutionary effect on the entire system. -- Amanda Hurley, National Board Certified Teacher
