Overview

Schools That Work provides critical insight into elementary schools and how they are to meet the increased demands of education for the 21st century.

“The experience of the authors can be heard on every page… [they] guide teachers and administrators in initiating change and inspire every educator to begin today to make a difference in his/her own school.” —Dr. Helen Hoffner, Holy Family University

“Schools That Workdoes an excellent job of covering key issues in school literacy programs. I particularly appreciate the good advice on working with paraprofessionals and volunteers, an issue that is problematic for many teachers.” Mariam Jean Dreher , University of Maryland

“This no-quick-fix approach…underscores the importance of strong leadership and support from the segments of the school community to help insure that the literacy needs of all students are appropriately addressed.” —Juan Lira, Texas A&M International University
