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."

Thorp HH, Goldstein B. Engines of innovation: The entrepreneurial university in the twenty-first century. Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press; 2010.

"In Engines of Innovation Holden Thorp and Buck Goldstein make the case for the pivotal role of research universities as agents of societal change.
