Linda Darling-Hammond and Robert Rothman have put together a very brief but powerful book on what we need to do about K-12 education. Published by Teachers College Press at Columbia University, it calls for a strong systemic approach to improve our teaching force through strong recruitment and preparation, attractive teaching conditions, continued support for learning, equitable allocation of teachers and resources and proactive leadership development.
