The next two years provide a once-in-a-generation opportunity to transform public education in America. If that opportunity is seized, America could lead the world in the quality of its public schools and universities in the 21st century, just as it did for the first two-thirds of the 20th century. In short, we know WHAT to do, WHY to do it and WHEN it ought to be done; the central challenge is that it is not clear HOW to get it done. This book is based on the premise that much of the disappointment of previous reforms is a result not of failed reform content but of failed implementation. Michael Barber describes a proven set of processes which will ensure that reform is actually delivered in the most profound sense, with the students themselves able to see, feel, and reap the benefits of a much better education. This is a book for people who want to get things done in government; who are as interested in the question "how?" as much as the question "what?"
