This was a fine, thought-provoking book, less on what ought to be done to improve education in America and more on what is going to happen to improve it. Published in 2008, it's already been long ... Read full review

When children enter any educational environment they proceed on the foundations from which they have received at home. This book advised of a study that exists that shows that intelligence and financial status are lower on the totem pole than just talking to your baby. This study really struck me as something that should be emphasized in our society, especially with the broad use of smart phones. I know we can't tell parents what to do, but we can certainly talk about it whenever we get the chance. I plan on discussing this with our mayor (Indianapolis) to see if we can get a public service announcement broadcasted on a regular basis to encourage young, and old parents to talk to their babies.

An interesting perspective on the illusive goal of getting our students to learn, and better yet, getting them on the way to "self education". I have another idea to do this, detailed on the website www.classroomspectaculars.com that's worth the time to read. Please do so. Thanks.

America must change from a nation that stamps out identical students to one that addresses the learning styles of each, argues Cristensen, author of 'The Innovator's Dillema'. then authors are dreamers, no doubt about it, but that doesn't make them wrong.

I have not read this book yet but I plan on reading it this summer!

Seems to be mostly aimed at schools and is anecdotal in nature but the overall ideas are interesting.
