About this Item

"Big issues require big-and innovative-solutions. Chris Whittle could have written an important book fifteen years ago when he began to reinvent our nation's schools, but he waited. I'm glad he did, for his clear and startling vision has now been enriched by yeasrs of struggle-and then success-0n America's complex and difficult educational terrain. The hard lessons he has learned can and should teach us all." {Richard Stengel}. This book has 269 pages and is illustrated. The book is a SIGNED AND DATED PRESENTATION copy from the author.
