Quality Matters

by lujer on Feb 21, 2008

A wonderful collection of authors who have been speaking for students and a Deweyian ideal: student-centered schools and classrooms. This book continues to illustrate why schools are not serving the real needs of so many students and HOW they can change and begin. The testing craze is going into its 3rd decade and continues to diminish the number of students succeeding in school and the quality of education the ones that survive are getting. If we are going to ensure a Democratic society instead of a Corporatized society we have to work harder to learn and practice democratic principals in each of our classrooms through student-centeredness and helping each student learn how to learn. Each essay takes a slightly different bent, but the end result is a picture that shows both the problems with our industrialized educational model and the opportunities still possible in our public schools. It all comes down to what is in going on in the classroom and what the teacher is willing to do to help each of their students go from where they are to as far as they can go. It also illustrates what quality leadership can do to work around poor policy and practice.
