"Alfie Kohn forces readers to ask what our children are doing in school
and what skills they really need to succeed in life. If you're a parent
or concerned citizen, this book ought to be on your list."
" A very important achievement -- a powerful, crisply written assault
upon the mad excesses of the educational ' standards' movement." --
Jonathan Kozol

"The Schools Our Children Deserve is a very important achievement, a powerful assault upon the mad excesses of the educational standards movement. It is a remarkable book that should become a classic in the field." -- Jonathan Kozol, author of Savage Inequalities
"The Schools Our Children Deserve forces us to reconsider most of what we thought we knew about education -- about homework and standardized testing, about phonics and what makes a good teacher. I want to hand this book to every parent in America and say, 'Before you send your child to school tomorrow, you must read this!'" -- Deborah Meier, educational reformer and author of The Power of Their Ideas: Lessons for America from a Small School in Harlem
