MEDIA REVIEWS
"Hopfenberg and Levin provide a powerful resource for creating schools grounded in community, reflection, inquiry, and the belief that all children can be smart. Such schools can move away from hierarchical, bureaucratic models in which only a few children are "winners" to become equitable and effective learning communities for all. Here, at last, is a "how to" book on school reform that helps educators confront the values, beliefs, and politics, as well as the practices, that make changing schools so difficult." ----Jeannie Oaks, professor of education, University of California-Los Angeles

"The Accelerated Schools Project gives us an opportunity to work hard, be successful, and to fight off the temptations of mediocrity." ----Michael O'Kane, prinicpal, Burnett Academy, San Jose Unified School District

"The accelerated schools philosophy takes our dreams and visions as educators, parents, and students and turns them into reality." ----Virginia Lynch, teacher, ARNONE Community Schools, Brockton, Massachusetts
