Editorial Reviews

?Newmann and his colleagues get beyond the slogans about ?highstandards' to what must be done in classrooms and schools. Theyroot this analysis in careful research, thereby giving itespecially persuasive force.? --Theodore R. Sizer, universityprofessor, Brown University, and chairman, Coalition of EssentialSchools
?Fred Newmann, unlike most researchers, pays attention to thecritical linkage between reorganizing schools and what happens inclassrooms. In these research-based portraits of schools andclassrooms, reform-minded policymakers and practitioners will findcompelling evidence to never forget the connection betweenteaching, learning, and restructuring.? --Larry Cuban, professor ofeducation, Stanford University
?Rare is the educational text that takes theory as seriously aspractice, that produces as much good news as sobering analyses,that tests for excellence and equity in the same setting. Newmannand Associates demonstrate unequivocally the powerful relation ofgood teaching to serious learning. This book is a gift toeducators, a treat for policymakers, and a treasure for those of uswho are starved for images of good educational practice. --MichelleFine, professor of psychology, City University of New York,Graduate Center
?Administrators, teachers, and parents who are serious aboutimplementing positive change in the educational process for the21st century will benefit from Authentic Achievement. In a societywhere educational qualifications are necessary to competeprofessionally, this book is a roadmap, showing ways we can helpyoung people achieve their goals.? --Floretta Dukes McKenzie,former superintAndent of schools, Washington, D.C., and president,The McKenzie Group, Inc.
