Review quote

"Collins has provided educators with a succinct, 120-page blueprint for how American schools can better prepare students for the complex world they inhabit today as well as the one they will inherit tomorrow. Collins' themes and specific suggestions are relevant for educators, administrators, and those crafting a new vision of schooling by challenging the long-standing assumptions about what students should learn."
