Persistent Threats and Paths Forward
“It’s a story that needs telling and this book does that very readably! It’s especially useful to those who may disagree with its underlying viewpoint. Especially at this time of peril we need to understand the connections—and misconnections—between schools and democracy!”
Deborah Meier, Leader in Holistic Reform in Urban Public Education
Challenging the Limits of Technocratic Methods
“Blakely and Hemphill have written a methods book that our field desperately needs. They have taken to task the profound lack of ingenuity, courage, and challenge to longstanding racist, classist, homophobic, and patriarchal patterns in the field of education and, specifically, education research. This is worth reading for all researchers. It is essential reading for those aiming to develop research practices that disrupt the radicalized inequities in our field.”
Jeff Duncan-Andrade, Professor, Latina/o Studies & Race and Resistance Studies, San Francisco State University
A Guide to Getting Tenure and Advancing Your Academic Career
“Candid Advice for New Faculty Members: A Guide to Getting Tenure and Advancing Your Academic Career is a road map for new faculty on how to navigate the brutal tenure system. It is easy to read and gives essential advice on how to be successful in one’s tenure application, how to develop an excellent teaching portfolio, and how to approach research and service, especially for women and faculty of color. Gasman gives simple and clear advice for staying focused on scholarship and teaching, and navigating academic politics.”
Abdalla Darwish, Ph.D., Presidential Professor, Physics & SPIE Fellow, Dillard University
A Pedagogical Guide
“Teaching Improvement Science in Educational Leadership is an essential pedagogic resource for anyone involved in the preparation and continued professional education of teacher, school, or system leaders. The authors are themselves leaders in the teaching of Improvement Science and in mentoring the application of the improvement principles to redressing racial and class inequities. They share here valuable lessons from their own teaching and improvement efforts.”
Anthony S. Bryk, Immediate past-president, Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and Author, "Learning to Improve: How America’s Schools Can Get Better at Getting Better"
