Review:

In Thinking about Schools, Eleanor Hilty has put together a wonderful collection of classic and contemporary readings that speak loudly and clearly to the importance of equity and justice as goals for contemporary education. This is just the right collection of readings to inspire and inform prospective and practicing teachers alike. It is the perfect text for introducing students to the social forces affecting public schooling in America.”
Barry M. Franklin, Utah State University

Thinking about Schools will be welcomed by those who are interested in thought-provoking essays for aspiring and current teachers. Hilty's introductory essays and discussion questions add significantly to the value of the volume.”
