“The price of criticism is a constructive alternative.” Saul Alinsky
The Crucial Voice of the People, Past and Present (purchase information) is a constructive alternative to the failed reform efforts of the past three decades.
“This is the book that parents, teachers, and anyone with a stake in public education needs to read!” writes Conny Jensen, Colorado parent and blogger at Build Better Schools.
Features of The Crucial Voice include:
►A foreword by Gary Ratner, director of Citizens for Effective Schools, captures the goal, focus, and main themes of The Crucial Voice as well as puts emphasis on the current events that make this book so timely.

► “The Road to Educational Quality and Equality: A Story with No Ending” is the new chapter that spawned all the changes in this book, justifying a second edition worthy of your time. It is based on findings from “The Coleman Report,” A Nation at Risk, research on community education, standards, and effective schools, and The Necessary Revolution in American Education by Francis Keppel.
► Clarification and expansion of solutions include where to start locally, making use of existing government resources, targeting wise investments, and those solutions that taken together will strengthen, improve, protect, and perfect the foundation of American public education.
► An index makes the book usable and useful in finding solutions to the problems your school faces as well as those that we share in common, as a nation.
