"Introducing the World of Education: A Case Study Reader is an anthology expertly written and edited for professionals in the field of education as well as for lifelong learners. Academic advisors, college admissions officers, aspiring teachers, future principals, and students would benefit most from this scholarly resource. The book will be one of my top 10 resources for advisement of undecided students and education majors." -- Joy Coleman * National Academic Advising Association (NACADA) *
