Radical: Fighting to Put Students First
- Publish Date: 2013-02-05
- Binding: Hardcover
- Author: Michelle Rhee
In Radical, Michelle Rhee, a fearless and pioneering advocate for education reform, draws on her own life story and delivers her plan for better American schools.
Rheeâs goal is to ensure that laws, leaders, and policies are making studentsânot adultsâour top priority, and she outlines concrete steps that will put us on a dramatically different course. Informing her critique are her extraordinary experiences in education: her years of teaching in inner-city Baltimore; her turbulent tenure as chancellor of the Washington, DC public schools; and her current role as CEO of the education nonprofit StudentsFirst. Rhee draws on dozens of compelling examples from schools sheâs worked in and studied, from students whoâve left behind unspeakable home lives and thrived in the classroom to teachers whose groundbreaking methods have produced unprecedented leaps in student achievement.
An incisive and intensely personal call-to-arms, Michelle Rheeâs Radical is required reading for anyone who seeks a guide to not only the improvement of our schools, but also a brighter future for Americaâs children.
