I bought this textbook for a course. This textbook was very helpful and the delivery of this book was excellent. The book looked new although it is used before and the price of the book is reasonable. Thank you so much. I am keeping track of all of my books that were delivered in a timely manner.

The book examines:- Successful reform initiatives in the U.S. and abroad- Actions and conditions that have insured traction and sustainability- Ways to avoid common errors of action, funding, and policy- New reforms at the national level that can impact learning right now
