Hess FM, Manno BV. Customized schooling : beyond whole-school reform. Cambridge, Mass.: Harvard Education Press; 2011. Abstract

"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."

Peurach DJ. Seeing complexity in public education : problems, possibilities, and success for all. Oxford ; New York: Oxford University Press; 2011.

"In a period of unprecedented pressure to reform education in the United States, two questions stand out: What is involved in the work of transforming underperforming schools into higher performing schools? And what makes this work so difficult? 'Seeing Complexity in Public Education' examines these questions in light of the history of the Success for All Foundation, an organization that has collaborated with thousands of elementary schools across the US to enact a common design for comprehensive school reform."
