Editorial Reviews

Maya Horton
Indeed, school leaders can and should use this book to guide them as they initiate 'anticipatory learning' discussions and think through multiple future scenarios. Doing so can ultimately empower and engage today's learners to change American education as we know it. Intelligent, innovative, inspiring, Rhea builds the case for staying in step with tomorrow, a nice breather from the status quo.
