Cutting through the Hype: The Essential Guide to School Reform. Revised, Expanded, and Updated Edition
David, Jane L.; Cuban, Larry
Harvard Education Press
"Cutting Through the Hype: The Essential Guide to School Reform" is a revised, expanded, and updated version of the classic work by Jane L. David and Larry Cuban. It offers balanced analyses of 23 currently popular school reform strategies, from teacher performance pay and putting mayors in charge to turnaround schools and data-driven instruction. Avoiding the heated rhetoric and exaggerated claims that accompany many education reforms, each chapter explains clearly and concisely what each reform intends to do, what happens in reality, and what it takes to make it work. Written by two savvy and experienced educator-researchers, "Cutting Through the Hype" is a book for expert and nonexpert readers alike--policymakers, researchers, school leaders, teachers, and concerned citizens and parents--indeed, for all who are committed to schools and have a stake in their success.
