Description:

In this important critique of American education, the author of "Horace's Compromise identifies crucial areas of failure in public education and offers guidelines for creating a new educational system to meet each child's needs and potential. "Sizer is a national treasure, one of the few giants in education in the past half century. . . . This is must reading for all who work in or care about schools in America."--Arthur E. Levine, president and professor, Teachers College, Columbia University "Whenever Sizer writes about education, it's worth paying attention. . . . "The Red Pencil is a lively romp through contested educational terrain, . . . at once a memoir, a series of . . . observations about American education based on experience, and a cri de coeur for change."--Andrew J. Rotherham, "New York Post
