A Place Called School: Twentieth Anniversary Edition
First published 20 years ago, A Place Called School is the revolutionary account of the largest on-scene study of U.S. schools ever conducted. Carried on over four years, trained investigators entered more than 1,000 classrooms nationwide to talk to teachers, students, administrators, parents, and other community members. The result is this report. Written by one of the nation's most astute and experienced educators, Goodlad's message of optimism and his agenda for improvement have only grown in importance since the book's original publication.

His ideas are clear, accurate, & apply today, but he didn't need nearly 400 pages to make his points. The book is unnecessarily repetitive. Read full review
Review: A Place Called School: Promise for the FutureUser Review - Jan - Goodreads
I loved this book . . . read it years ago and reread it again recently. It is a great study of what our schools are offering today and what needs to change to provide access for all. Every educators should read this book. It is 25 years old and still relevant. Read full review
