“The authors of each of these chapters derived their ideas through hard-earned experience. . . . They are not writing from an ivory tower or from the comfort of a research center, but from the front lines, where they have learned firsthand about the real challenges and difficulties that teachers face in their efforts to improve the learning outcomes of all students.”
