In 1986, a group of Milwaukee-area teachers, frustrated with the pace of education reform, created the quarterly journal Rethinking Schools. Since its inception, the journal has gained a reputation for insightful writing about some of the most controversial issues in contemporary education. A mix of thought-provoking essays, interviews, and practical suggestions culled from the journal, this book addresses the most pressing concerns of reformers in five different subject areas: "Multiculturalism and Antibias Education," "Rethinking the Curriculum," "Testing and Tracking," "National Policy Concerns," and "Teachers, Students and Parents." In addition to providing sound advice for dealing with these issues on a day-to-day basis, the book also includes resource and material lists in each chapter. The contributors range from national education reform figures and activists to current classroom teachers. Their refreshing and accessible writing not only advocates reform but also demands public accountability. An intelligent, thoughtful work, this compilation takes a small but profound step toward liberating the public school system from the dreary, ineffective mandates that have ruled the education field for decades.
