Content is very pertinent to education and education reform. Interesting ideas and well described committee process. Sizer¿s ideas are compelling, yet his writing style left me somewhat annoyed and I had to push through the entire book. The quality of the content was, however, enough to help me reach the end.

Sizer's observations and accurate description of students from different backgrounds is sensitive and visual. I enjoyed the 'roaming-the-halls' writing style--not having taught yet, it enabled me to get a very real sense of a highschool classroom. The 'five imperatives for better schools' were a great idea-- perhaps feasible if incorporated gradually and in combination with the routine core curriculum.
