Perspectives on Rescuing Urban Literacy Education: Spies, Saboteurs, and Saints is an exploration of the variables that contribute to the improvement of literacy instruction in large urban school districts. The book grows out of a five-year initiative known as The Dallas Reading Plan--a $50 million collaborative effort between area business and corporate interests, philanthropy, and the Dallas Independent School District.

Audiences include university professors and graduate students in reading/literacy education, educational leadership, special education, urban studies, and change management theory, school board members, business and community leaders, classroom teachers, parents, and those concerned with the status of literacy education in urban settings.

Review:

This important book represents a major contribution to the emerging field of urban literacy education. The contributors move us beyond stale stereotypes about the teachers who work [in metropolitan areas] and the children they faithfully serve....Facts and data abound in this volume, but it is the personal accounts of the teachers 'working in the trenches' that you will find inspiring and passionate. In the end, we walk away with renewed faith and a sense of pride for reading teachers everywhere.

Dr. Cooter writes in a very accessible manner with wonderful metaphors and analogies....The combination of theory and practice at the policy level of literacy instruction will be a significant contribution to the field.
Timothy Rasinski
Kent State University

...A very timely and ground-breaking book about the complexities of bringing about systemic reform in large urban school districts in the area of literacy education.
Kouider Mokhtari
Oklahoma State University
