?Fred Newmann, unlike most researchers, pays attention to the critical linkage between reorganizing schools and what happens in classrooms. In these research-based portraits of schools and classrooms, reform-minded policymakers and practitioners will find compelling evidence to never forget the connection between teaching, learning, and restructuring.? --Larry Cuban, professor of education, Stanford University
?Rare is the educational text that takes theory as seriously as practice, that produces as much good news as sobering analyses, that tests for excellence and equity in the same setting. Newmann and Associates demonstrate unequivocally the powerful relation of good teaching to serious learning. This book is a gift to educators, a treat for policymakers, and a treasure for those of us who are starved for images of good educational practice. --Michelle Fine, professor of psychology, City University of New York, Graduate Center
?Administrators, teachers, and parents who are serious about implementing positive change in the educational process for the 21st century will benefit from Authentic Achievement. In a society where educational qualifications are necessary to compete professionally, this book is a roadmap, showing ways we can help young people achieve their goals.? --Floretta Dukes McKenzie, former superintAndent of schools, Washington, D.C., and president, The McKenzie Group, Inc.
