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

"The Accelerated Schools Project gives us an opportunity to workhard, be successful, and to fight off the temptations ofmediocrity." ----Michael O'Kane, prinicpal, Burnett Academy, SanJose Unified School District

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