Summary
  • Examines some of the problems that plague the American public school system, identifies solutions that have worked in the past, and celebrates the hero teachers, staffers, and administrators the author met as the Obama Secretary of Education. --
  • From his mother's after-school program on Chicago's South Side to his tenure as Secretary of Education in DC, Duncan exposes the lies that have caused American kids to fall behind their international peers, from early childhood all the way to college graduation rates. But he also celebrates the countless everyday heroes encountered along the way, encouraging parents, teachers, voters, and even students to demand more of our public schools. -- adapted from jacket
