Throughout the course of a long career in both the public and private sectors, he has analyzed why organizations succeed or fail, and has been a proponent for education reform as he travels the country speaking to parents, educators, and community leaders. Abstract: Renewal offers a clear picture of how to move away from the mass-production style of education that most schools offered throughout the twentieth century to a new, more innovative, and flexible model that can meet this country's promise of truly educating every child and preparing each of them for the challenges ahead. While the goal requires systemic change, the real challenge, as is reflected in the histories of the schools visited, is to persuade all the adults, from teachers to legislators, to buy into the vision and make their actions consistent with their words. Chapter Eighteen: Seeing Every Child for Who They Are, Not Who We Assume Them to Be-Replacing One Curriculum Taught One WayChapter Nineteen: Ending a System Designed to Lose Track of Kids-Paying Attention to Real Students, Not to the Assumptions We Make about Them; Chapter Twenty: Assessing Students: Never Letting Them Fall Too Far Behind; Chapter Twenty-one: Parents: One Half of a Confused Partnership; Chapter Twenty-two: Parents: Long-Ignored Customers and Owners; Part V: The Template: The Things High-Performing Schools Have in Common; Chapter Twenty-three: Six Beliefs. Politics, finance, legal issues, and accountability are covered in a most readable manner.
