'As Carr says, without responsible professional reflection there is not much hope, either for teaching or democracy. But teachers already committed to such reflection will find real value in what he says and in his conclusions. And there's an excellent glossary.' - Michael Duffy, TES 'A tour de force of analytic discrimination, it is testimony to the necessity for plain prose and careful argument in educational discourse.' - Theory and Research in Education
