In the raging controversy over the purpose of public education and how to fix the nation’s underperforming schools, the voices of America’s best teachers are seldom heard. Now for the first time, in a provocative book about the future of teaching and learning, 12 of America’s most accomplished classroom educators join a leading advocate for a 21st-century teaching profession to bring expert pedagogical know-how and fresh and provocative policy ideas to the national school reform debate. Together they identify four emergent realities that will shape the learning experience of children born in the New Millennium—and propose six levers of change that can ignite a bright future for our nation’s students by ensuring they all have access to excellent teaching.

Paul C. Gorski is Associate Professor of Integrative Studies in New Century College at George Mason University, where he teaches in the Social Justice concentration and the Education concentration. He is the founder of EdChange and the Multicultural Pavilion, a Web site that has won more than a dozen awards internationally for its contribution to multicultural education scholarship and practice.
