So many reformers talk about fundamental changes in schoolingwithout understanding what such deep changes entail for children,teachers, and administrators. Seymour Sarason does.

He seeks long-termprevention and he sees the lever, as John Goodlad did, in thepreparation of teachers. Add this to your small library of wisdomabout school reform.
