really liked it

A fun and thoughtful read. She manages to pack a lot of relevant and interesting information, including some fascinating history, into what is really a short book. And she does it with great humor and a graceful touch.

Her insights on the future needs in education are provocative. As the mother of an imminent second grader, I have thought often of the issues she addresses, and I loved hearing her thoughts. And the kindness with which she regards those with different opinions is lovely and refreshing.

Worthwhile reading for parents and educators, or anyone with thoughts about our country's future.
