MEDIA REVIEWS
Sandra Feldman

President, American Federation of Teachers

For a decade now we've looked hard at how other countries deliver good education. We've studied their standards, their curricula, their exams, and their student performance. Finally, here's a book that says none of this will make a difference unless teachers have a professional life -- the opportunity to develop and teach the good lessons that enable other reforms to have an impact in typical classrooms with real kids. Stigler and Hiebert's comparative analysis of Japanese, German, and U.S. teaching advises us to make schools places where teachers have the time and support to systematically study and improve upon their daily work. How sensible!


Gary K. Hart

Secretary of Education, State of California

Provides valuable insights and cautionary notes that should guide the education reform debate in the years ahead.


Paul L. Kimmelman

Superintendent of Schools, Northbrook, Illinois

A must for all educators, not only for the knowledge that can be gained about teaching, but also as a tool for building collaborative efforts to enhance curriculum and instruction.


Lee S. Shulman

President, The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching

A revolutionary book...brilliantly documents the ways in which America's teaching, rather than its teachers, contributes to deficits in student learning. Stigler and Hiebert help us recognize how many opportunities other nations' teachers have to learn from one another and to improve as professionals. "The Teaching Gap" offers far better hope for the improvement of American education than most other initiatives.
