School reform efforts in the United States during the last decade have tended to concentrate on issues including professionalizing teaching, site-based decision-making, increasing the school day and academic year, and national assessments. The curriculum has been only peripherally addressed. This book focuses on the curriculum, detailing steps that need to be taken to move from a traditional school system to a true learning organization.
