This book should be required reading for educational policy makers including school board members, parents, legislators, as well as educators. -- Arthur L. Costa, professor emeritus, California State University; co-author of Cognitive Coaching: Developing Self-Directed Leaders and Learners Delightfully congruent with constructivist learning theory and current brain research, Geoffrey and Renate Caine provide rich examples of sound learning processes and effective schooling....The Caines seek to bring us together, to examine our mental models and look logically and compassionately at ways we can enrich schooling, and the culture itself. -- Robert J. Garmston, Co-developer of Cognitive Coaching and Adaptive Schools; emeritus professor, California State University, Sacramento honest account of how the push for standardization weakens education, demoralizes students and educators, and prevents effective learning from occuring. It demands a profound rethinking of the larger themes in education, which parents and teachers will find rewarding and empowering. -- Fritjof Capra, founding director, Center for Ecoliteracy, and author of The Turning Point and The Web of Life The best book yet from a pair of authors who excel in showing how research knowledge on human learning can transform schools. If a book can be both visionary and practical, this is it. A brilliant and sobering analysis of today's wrong-headed 'reforms'-but a clear description of a very different and far more effective approach to education. -- Ron Brandt, former executive editor of Educational Leadership The Brain, Education, and the Competitive Edge provides a valuable framework for avoiding the negative effects of standardization as we build high-performing learning communities. * School Administrator *
