What Were The Top Education Books Of The Decade?

| 1 Comment

“Education Next” has just begun a poll to identify the top education books of the decade. They let you vote for three that the have on their list.

It’s a very difficult choice. I ended up voting for:

Anthony S. Bryk et. al. Organizing Schools for Improvement: Lessons from Chicago. (University Of Chicago Press, 2010)

Charles M. Payne. So Much Reform, So Little Change: The Persistence of Failure in Urban Schools. (Harvard Education Press, 2008)

Diane Ravitch. The Death and Life of the Great American School System: How Testing and Choice Are Undermining Education. (Basic Books, 2010)

If you go over there to vote, please leave a comment here sharing either your number one choice or all three that you voted for (or another one that might not be on the list).

I’d be interested in hearing what readers of this blog think….

  1. For me:
    From Good to Great by Collins
    The Fifth Discipline by Sengi
    Outliers by Gladwell
    By my choices you can tell that I am an school administrator, but all three of these helped me to formulate my thoughts on the future of schools.
