New in paperback. An excellent 'how-to-do-it book' for educators in schools and school districts who are involved in or about to begin major school-based reforms. - Thomas W.

Renewing America's Schools raises the most fundamental questions about the purpose of public education, the role of schools, and the needed school-based application to fulfill the promise of education in a democratic society. This is a book that shows teachers, principals, students, parents, central office personnel, school boards, and community members exactly what they need to do to create schools that are purposeful, moral, and successful places.A down-to-earth and provocative look at the school reform movement, Renewing America's Schools keeps the focus of renewal squarely on teaching and learning concerns. It is an invaluable resource for anyone involved with school change.Contents1. Introduction: Recapturing the Essence of SchoolsPart One: A Framework for Renewing Schools2.
