Celebrating 25 years of Education Week"For twenty-five years Education Week has been the standard for news and views on American education. In this new publication they offer a rich trove of past opinion pieces from some of America's best education thinkers. This is a great collection of some of the best back-page editorials all in one book." -Paul D. Houston, executive director, American Association of School Administrators, Arlington, Virginia"Finally! Here's a book filled with thought-provoking, relevant discussions about important issues in education. I can't wait for their Greatest Hits, Volume II." -Rafe Esquith, 5th grade teacher at Hobart Boulevard Elementary School, Los Angeles, California, and author, Teach Like Your Hair's on Fire and There Are No Shortcuts"The Last Word chronicles the wisdom and insight of a generation of courageous voices who have put truth to power regarding the importance of shifting the fundamental architecture of education reform. Historian John Hope Franklin said it best when he called public education 'the national responsibility.'" -Wendy D. Puriefoy, president, Public Education Network, Washington, D.C."For twenty-five years our professional discourse has been enriched by Education Week's Commentaries - which are always informative, sometimes inspirational, and frequently controversial.
