Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"So many reformers talk about fundamental changes in schooling without understanding what such deep changes entail for children, teachers, and administrators. Seymour Sarason does. In his provocative, mind-bending and passionate style, Sarason again argues against short-term repairs of schools. He seeks long-term prevention and he sees the lever, as John Goodlad did, in the preparation of teachers. Add this to your small library of wisdom about school reform."

--Larry Cuban, professor of education, Stanford University

Book News Annotation:

Education theorist Sarason (psychology, Yale U.) calls for a complete reconceptualization of training for educators, as the only possible foundation for improving the education of students. Discussing power in schools, higher education, and governance, he acknowledges the complexity of reform, but declares that the harder and longer the task, the sooner we must start on it.
