Hardback Published: 07/08/1997
Revolutionizing America's Schools is provocative, personal, and right on the mark. It should be read by anyone who believes our schools can better educate our young and who is committed to making the effort to improve them. - Paul Schwarz, Principal of the Jackie Robinson Complex, and Co-director of Central Park East Secondary School, East Harlem, New York CityWith this insightful, practical collection of personal essays, Glickman tackles education's most urgent questions. Who should govern schools? Whose values should schools represent? How should teachers teach? How does democratic change occur? Glickman directly addresses issues of race, culture, gender, and religion and reveals how understanding these issues can contribute to purposeful change, and he connects democratic rhetoric to action - covering such practicalities as student grouping, curriculum selection, and school leadership.
