Summary
"Dos & Don'ts of Education Reform is a unique critical study of legislated reform in the U.S. Resisting the temptation to make facile recommendations for future action, this book takes pointed aim at the failure of education reform. Roselli blames a narrow-minded focus on testing and accountability, advocating instead for an honest, morally-driven construction of theory and practice. He breaks new ground in this close, multidisciplinary examination of curriculum, instruction and assessment by demonstrating how to create the conditions for a successful school experience for all students: a sociocultural view of success and a strong desire to improve the human condition. This book is an excellent accompaniment to courses such as social foundations of education and critical issues in education, as well as those dealing with educational policy and leadership."--BOOK JACKET
