Education, Education, Education

Five visionary educators have joined together to share their personal stories of the challenges and triumphs they faced in the classroom, and their ideas of what education can and should be for every student. THOSE WHO DARED: Five Visionaries Who Changed American Education serves as an inspirational guide to action for those looking to be more involved in the urgent and continuing efforts to restore America s public schools.

I recently spoke to Carl Glickman, the books editor who is Scholar-in-Residence in the Educational Administration and Policy Program at the University of Georgia.
