"McEwan packs much information into this book, easily read by principals and others with or without a mathematics background. She had four goals in mind while writing, and she definitely achieved her goals:
- To convince principals of the power they and their faculty have to make numeracy a reality for all students.
- To introduce the reader to the current controversies in mathematics instruction.
- To present recent research in mathematics instruction so that school staffs can make informed decisions.
To share her suggestions for changes to improve instruction and to make a difference in student numeracy."
