Praise for The Power to Transform

"Stephanie Marshall′s brilliant thesis invites us to think differently about learning and schooling both in the United States and around the globe. In fact, it does much more. It provides us with ways by which we can change our thinking about learning and thus offers a new map for schooling that can excite all students and leaders of progressive education."
Robert W. Galvin, chairman emeritus, Motorola, Inc.

"For many years, Stephanie has been a wise, passionate, and courageous educator. Nobody cares more about children; no one honors their innate qualities more than she. Her book makes this visible to the world. She knows our children, she knows our schools, she knows the future if we don′t change we must take heed of her message."
Margaret J. Wheatley, author, Leadership and the New Science

"At a time when ′education reform′ is dominated by hollow slogans and political sleight of hand, here is a book that is wise, grounded, visionary, practical, and wonderfully well written. Authored by one of our nation′s leading educators, it offers a model of teaching and learning forged in the real world that has the potential to transform public education. May this superb book be not only read but taken to heart by everyone who cares about our children and their future."
Parker J. Palmer, author, The Courage to Teach,Let Your Life Speak, and A Hidden Wholeness

"Drawing on a lifetime in education and her experiences as the founding leader of the world–renowned Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy, Stephanie Pace Marshall offers an original and compelling synthesis on the fostering of learning in the worlds of today and tomorrow."
Howard Gardner, Hobbs Professor of Education and Cognition,Harvard Graduate School of Education
