Duckworth's ideas contained in these timeless essays are more important than ever to the public discourse on education. They are a much-needed antidote to many of today's school reform practices, where a number is accepted as an adequate representation of a student's learning. This revised edition features a new Introduction and a new chapter on critical exploration in the classroom.
