    Great book for ALL educators!

    I've facilitated book studies of this book with teacher leaders and administrators in Alabama. They have all found the information to be applicable in their schools. Elise Foster and I converse from time to time about how transformational this book is for us as educators. This is a MUST READ for every educator!
