What Amy Gutmann says

In this engaging and eye-opening investigation, author Green marshals clear evidence that great teaching is a learned skill and that movements to fire-and-hire our way to a better national teaching force are bound to come up short. A compelling case for why we must, and how we can advance the art and science of teaching in America.
