Overview

Praise For Phillip Schlechty

"Schlechty offers a clear and concise vision of systemic change to address the problems with education."
—The School Administrator

"Schlechty marshals readers through the ideas-to-action labyrinth of improving schools . . . A worthy successor to his earlier work."
—The American School Board Journal

"Not all reformers in the country will agree with Schlechty's solutions or even the problems, but they will be the richer for having read what he has to say on the subject."
—Louisville Courier-Journal

"Schlechty adds a refreshing voice to the ongoing how-to-fix-our-schools debate . . . Highly recommended."
—Library Journal
