It treats, head on, the critical issue of school accountability: who's responsible in education for whom, where, and to what ends, both personal and public. We are all the wiser and stronger from this analysis. We see, as we're told, that accountability is affected by both substance and image, based on major competencies. We are all better off-yes, stronger-for having experienced this amazing book. Being wiser and more accountable can only benefit our schools, their staff, and most importantly, our children. -- Bruce S.
