“… on par with Horace’s Compromise, Theodore Sizer’s seminal 1984 descriptor of the failures of America’s high schools. However, the critical difference between Grant Lichtman’s Ed Journey and Theodore Sizer’s Horace rests in a sense of real hope for a bright educational future revealed by Grant in the schools and districts that he visited… a must read…”

 Pam Moran, Superintendent of County Schools, Albermarle, VA

“… Incredibly insightful about the future of K-12 education. …poignant, memorable, and full of wisdom…a firsthand account that is alive and real…witty, funny, and engaging, It sees the future of education for what it should be – about how children and how they learn.”

Dr. Thomas Shields, Director, Center for Leadership in Education, University of Richmond

“… captures the essence of the transformation underway in American education… an incredibly helpful roadmap for all of us who are committed to change education so that our students are truly prepared for their 21st century lives.”

Ken Kay, CEO EdLeader21, Co-author, The Leader’s Guide to 21st Century Education

“Drawing on months of school visits, Lichtman raises questions of the most basic nature…persuasively argues that innovation requires us to change or suffer the missed opportunities in an educational future that won’t wait for us to catch up.”

John Gulla, Executive Director, EE Ford Foundation:

“Wow…required reading for all stakeholders! As Lichtman writes so compellingly, we students aren’t comfortable just being led down an intellectual path; we want to help design our path…loved reading how some schools have solved difficult problems…are embracing the concept of school as part of the real world. Loved it!”

Jack Andraka, high school student, 2012 winner Intel ISEF award, TED speaker, featured on CBS “60 Minutes”:

 “…invaluable in this age of ambiguity and uncertainty…steps back and asks the key questions of today – how do we navigate accelerating change in an industry stuck in old models of learning?  As relevant to higher education educators and leaders as it is to the K-12 world.”

 Howard Teibel, Educational change and leadership consultant
