Wolk, R. A. (2011). Wasting minds: why our education system is failing and what we can do about it. Alexandria, VA: ASCD.
Review of the first third of the book:
- New practices and reforms to the existing education system won't work
- Wolk believes that the "engine for a new schools strategy is personalized education anchored in the real world"
"With an idealist's heart and pragmatist's spine, [and] he shows how to build an education system centered on students and true to the ideals of freedom, rigor, and fairness" - author Ronald A. Wolk
