I loved this book. Even as I was reading it, it gave me insights (and the all important good quotes) for a number of educational issues that are in the forefront for me at the moment. It made me wish I had that great facility that a dear friend has to recall pithy and appropriate quotes on any topic once she's read a book... and recall them long after my memory of a book has faded to the headline and outline. Everybody involved in education should read this book.

Four stars because there need to be more books on the topic. It raises more questions than it answers, which might very well be the point.
