Education works better when teachers can concentrate on teaching and on students instead of concentrating on meticulous implementation of ever-changing political reforms of education or on laborious implementation of increasingly bureaucratic, mechanical procedures which are mandated by the education hierarchy. This book explains realistic, practical, genuine ways to improve schools. This book also examines ways not to improve schools including some of the common political, bureaucratic, top-down efforts. The book emphasizes that one significant factor in actions that actually improve education is that teacher input is sought and is applied. Teachers, based on their experiences, know what works in the classroom with and for students. Nothing else in education matters more.
