Why should Education Secretary Arne Duncan or other leaders read your book?
I view this as a two-way stream. A lot of what I write about I learned from teachers. There's no silver bullet here. I think anyone, but especially people who are really in the middle of it, hopefully they'll find the book as a clarifying tool. To take a step back and say, OK, maybe I agree with Sal, maybe I don't agree with Sal. But this book gives me license to take a step back and question some of our primary assumptions.
