Last fall I realized I had an important book contained in my work of the last 3-4 years; I just needed to write it. K-12 education is undergoing a period of rapid evolution unlike any we have seen in at least 150 years. Some schools, public and private, will rise to meet this evolutionary challenge; others are already struggling to attract enough students to survive. This book is for those of you who want your school or district to not only survive, but thrive, in this challenging environment.
Here is what just a few of your colleagues said about THRIVE: How Schools Will Win the Education Revolution:
Imagine you are climbing a mountain with a large group of people. Hard challenges ahead. Now imagine that you have the wisest and most capable, ingenious, clever, and informed trail guide you’ve ever met at your side, helping you plan and execute your climb. You feel better, don’t you? If your mountain-climb is redesigning a school to serve students in this vastly challenging world, Grant Lichtman is that guide and this book is your trail map. Don’t begin your climb without it.
