In the field of education, there are so many articles and books about whats broken, who broke it, what has not worked, how the children are failing and have been failing and then there is RESULTS. If, as an educator you do not have a professional library, and can not afford one, sell something you own and purchase this book. You will see that it is a glass of ice cold refreshing water in the desert on a hot day. It inspires us to take ownership instead of relying on management to tell us how and to lead us to the the only focus of education....which is student learning. It emphasizes the use of data not just collection, but as a real tool for improvement and sustaining improvements. In sports we say Teamwork makes the dream work, well so does Schmoker in this book. One final note, unlike so many other books in this field, there are examples you can read about and understand the formula those schools use to facilitate and maintain SUCCESS.
