The Futures of School Reform represents the culminating work of a three-year discussion among national education leaders convened by the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

Based on the recognition that current education reform efforts have reached their limits, the volume maps out a variety of bold visions that push the boundaries of our current thinking. Taken together, these visions identify the leverage points for generating dramatic change and highlight critical trade-offs among different courses of action.

The goal of this book is not to present a menu of options. Rather, it is to surface contrasting assumptions, tensions, constraints, and opportunities, so that together we can better understand—and act on—the choices that lie before us.

About the Author:

Jal Mehta is an assistant professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Robert B. Schwartz is the Francis Keppel Professor of Practice of Educational Policy and Administration at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Frederick M. Hess is a resident scholar and director of education policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute.

Review:

"The Futures of School Reform will be an interesting addition to any library devoted to the topic of systemic change. Its primary appeal lies in the way it brings together an array of ideologically diverse perspectives regarding what needs to be done in order to transform American K-12 schooling from its current dysfunctional state to a system that is truly responsive to 21st-century learning needs. This book can also serve as a useful resource for students in a graduate course on systemic change." — Deepak Prem Subramony, Educational Technology

"The discussion delivers a commendable performance of raising awareness and presenting specific considerations in the undertaking of public school reform." — G. Moreno, CHOICE

"A mine of information and a must read for educators and the public alike." — Claude Ury, City Book Review
