First published in 1984, this best-selling classic is Theodore Sizer's eloquent call to arms for school reform. In a new preface, Sizer addresses the encouraging movements afoot today for better schools, smaller classes, and fully educated students.

Sizer's insistence that we do more than just compromise for our children's educational futures resonates just as strongly today as it did two decades ago.
