"Schlechty marshals readers through the ideas-to-action labyrinth of improving schools. . . . A worthy successor to his earlier work." (The American School Board Journal)
"A book filled with hope. . . . Not all reformers in the country will agree with Schlechty's solutions or even the problems, but they will be the richer for having read what he has to say on the subject." (Louisville Courier-Journal)
"Schlechty adds a refreshing voice to the ongoing how-to-fix-our-schools debate. . . . Highly recommended." (Library Journal)
