So many reformers talk about fundamental changes in schoolingwithout understanding what such deep changes entail for children,teachers, and administrators. Seymour Sarason does. In hisprovocative, mind-bAnding and passionate style, Sarason againargues against short-term repairs of schools. He seeks long-termprevention and he sees the lever, as John Goodlad did, in thepreparation of teachers. Add this to your small library of wisdomabout school reform.
