Notes:

"Why do American schools keep failing? As David Labaree shows, the real question is why we expect them to succeed, given the enormous demands we make of them. Labaree's answers won't please anyone looking for a big quick fix to American education. But they will fascinate anyone who wants to understand our enduring faith in the public schools."--Jonathan Zimmerman, author of Small Wonders: The Little Red Schoolhouse in History and Memory
