The late Theodore Sizer's vision for a truly democratic public high school system

Our current high schools are ill-designed and inefficient. We have inherited a program of studies that in its overall structure has not changed in over a century. The question is What's next? Theodore Sizer, the founder of The Coalition of Essential Schools, was a passionate advocate for the American school system. In this, his last book, he offers a vision of what a future secondary education might look like. In a book that tells the story of his own odyssey, Sizer gives shape to a much-needed agenda for improving our high schools.

  • Includes a vision for the future of our High Schools from one of America's greatest leaders of educational reform
  • Written by Theodore Sizer founder of The Coalition of Essential Schools and author of landmark book Horace's Compromise

This final book from the late Theodore Sizer reveals the man and his vision for our secondary education system.



Baker & Taylor
