We are witnessing a rising tide of popular consensus that the traditional, century-old, model of education is no longer serving our children. Performance on standardized test scores is becoming the floor of school performance, not the ceiling, and more and more schools are drafting strategic plans that state skills such as problem solving, collaboration, systems thinking and creativity must become an integral part of the school's DNA. In the last two to three years, the conversation has shifted from "We need to change from the factory model and here's why" to, "OK, I know that level of change is needed. But how do we change?" This book is for anyone who is designing, leading, or participating in this level of change: Change that supports students in learning the skills, knowledge and habits of mind that will enable them to thrive in an unknowable future" --

    I have three kids with special needs in varying degrees and through their school years, it has been a challenge. Sadly, not enough change happens with the system. For me, this book was a step in the right direction. The author takes time to not only give guidelines but examples on how to move forward with making a change that not only benefits our children but others as well.

Sadly, not enough change happens with the system. For me, this book was a step in the right direction. The author takes time to not only give guidelines but examples on how to move forward with making a change that not only benefits our children but others as well. She gives a well thought out explanation along with guidelines that will surely make things easier on me as I go into a new school with my daughter next year. With a new school, comes a lot of things that we will have to become acquainted with. But with this book as a guide, I feel more confident in making sure that she gets all that she needs for the last few years of her schooling. It seems like there are so many changes each year! I feel like this book is a fabulous summer read for anyone who is looking for guidance on the ever-changing roller coaster ride that is today's education. It's really a great read!

    Overall, it had good information on it. I had to read this for a class and was pleasantly surprised. It was an easy read and not filled with a bunch of education jargon- very understandable and a good book to pick up if you are leading or part of a whole school change. I wish the book went more into HOW these examples went about implementing change- they mentioned a tiny bit of how to do it. For example, they'd say "build trust"...great, but how specifically would you go about doing that? There w Overall, it had good information on it.
