Review quote

"Intellectually and morally acute, vibrantly alive...parents, teachers or legislators who miss this richly clarifying discourse on the contemporary politics of literacy deserve to sit in the corner for a week."--Benjamin DeMott, Amherst College."Original, informed, brilliantly argued, and written with real passion....It is going to be very useful in the literacy debates in the next few years."--Richard Lanham, Director of the Writing Program, University of California, Los Angeles."A stimulating, enlightening, and provocative book."--Paul B. Salmon, American Association of School Administrators.show more
