"We hope that this book can help policy makers and practitioners think through the challenges of shifting our system of schooling to one focused on customizing instruction and services to serve students with diverse needs. Absent such attention, well-meaning reformers will continue to design policies and practices that stifle the emergence of more promising problem solvers."
