I like non-fiction, and I'm learning to like fiction more every day.

The Death and Life of the Great American School System: How Testing and Choice Are Undermining Education

The Death and Life of the Great American School System: How Testing and Choice Are Undermining Education - Diane Ravitch I really like the story of Diane Ravitch re-thinking her views on education and in many ways reversing course. Having experienced suburban and inner-city public, charter and affluent and urban private schools over the past 10 year, I especially appreciate how the history and analysis in this book illuminated what has been happening all around me and in the lives of thousands of teachers and administrators throughout the most recent educational controversy of high-stakes testing and hyper school choice trends. Anyone interested in education, but especially those currently working in the field or contemplating it, should read the book.
