After the education wars : how smart schools upend the business of reform

September 13, 2018
Gabor, Andrea, author.
373 pages ; 24 cm
Introduction : The quiet revolution -- Big dreams, small schools : how entrepreneurial rebels built a movement in New York City -- Testing power : when is disruption just . . . disruptive? -- State of reform : the not-so-quiet revolution in Massachusetts -- No lone stars : how trust and collaboration in one Texas school district have created lasting reform -- The hurricane and the charters : new schools unearth old ways in New Orleans -- Conclusion : A civic action: how schools -- and society -- benefit from real democracy.
"In an entirely fresh take on school reform, business journalist and bestselling author Andrea Gabor argues that Bill Gates, Eli Broad, and other leaders of the prevailing education-reform movement have borrowed all the wrong lessons from the business world. After the Education Wars explains how the market-based measures and carrot-and-stick incentives informing today's reforms are out of sync with the nurturing culture that good schools foster and--contrary to popular belief--at odds with the best practices of thriving twenty-first-century companies as well." -- Amazon.

Aguilar, Elena, 1969- author.
San Francisco, CA : Jossey-Bass, [2018]
x, 372 pages ; 24 cm
Habits and dispositions of emotionally resilient educators -- A calendar of learning -- The resilience manifesto -- Know yourself : June -- Understand emotions : July -- Tell empowering stories : August -- Build community : September -- Be here now : October -- Take care of yourself : November -- Focus on the bright spots : December -- Cultivate compassion : January -- Be a learner : February -- Play and create : March -- Ride the waves of change : April -- Celebrate and appreciate : May -- Conclusion : onward to freedom.
"Onward tackles the problem of educator stress, and provides a practical framework for taking the burnout out of teaching. Stress is part of the job, but when 70 percent of teachers quit within their first five years because the stress is making them physically and mentally ill, things have gone too far. Unsurprisingly, these effects are highest in difficult-to-fill positions such as math, science, and foreign languages, and in urban areas and secondary classrooms—places where we need our teachers to be especially motivated and engaged. This book offers a path to resiliency to help teachers weather the storms and bounce back—and work toward banishing the rain for good. This actionable framework gives you concrete steps toward rediscovering yourself, your energy, and your passion for teaching. You’ll learn how a simple shift in mindset can affect your outlook, and how taking care of yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally is one of the most important things you can do. The companion workbook helps you put the framework into action, streamlining your way toward renewal and strength. Cultivate resilience with a four-part framework based on 12 key habits Uncover your true self, understand emotions, and use your energy where it counts Adopt a mindful, story-telling approach to communication and community building Keep learning, playing, and creating to create an environment of collective celebration By cultivating resilience in schools, we help ensure that we are working in, teaching in, and leading organizations where every child thrives, and where the potential of every child is recognized and nurtured. Onward provides a step-by-step plan for reigniting that spark."

The lost education of Horace Tate : uncovering the hidden heroes who fought for justice in schools

July 31, 2018
Walker, Vanessa Siddle, author.
viii, 468 pages ; 25 cm
Introduction: finding the hidden provocateurs -- Prologue: before the end -- In the shadow of his smile -- Now you see me, now you don't -- My dear Mr. Marshall -- The balm in gilead -- A simple scheme to do a "simple little" -- To help our people -- Fighting white folk -- Out of the public eye -- Seasons of opportunity -- Paying the cost -- Just trying to be a man -- Moving on up -- In this present crisis -- Shifting sands -- The ties that bind -- Paying the Cost-Again -- Walking the Ancient Paths -- Policing the South -- Justice Restructured in Dixie -- As freedom turns -- Not a two-way street -- We hold these truths -- Fighting back -- A charge to keep I have -- Justice betrayed -- A second-class integration it is -- Nobody but a fool -- Epilogue: the last word.
"In the epic tradition of Eyes on the Prize and with the cultural significance of John Lewis's March trilogy, an ambitious and harrowing account of the devoted black educators who battled Southern school segregation and inequality. For two years an aging Dr. Horace Tate—a former teacher, principal, and state senator—told Emory University professor Vanessa Siddle Walker about his clandestine travels on unpaved roads under the cover of night, meeting with other educators and with Dr. King, Georgia politicians, and even U.S. presidents. Sometimes he and Walker spoke by phone, sometimes in his office, sometimes in his home; always Tate shared fascinating stories of the times leading up to and following Brown v. Board of Education. Dramatically, on his deathbed, he asked Walker to return to his office in Atlanta, in a building that was once the headquarters of another kind of southern strategy, one driven by integrity and equality. Just days after Dr. Tate’s passing in 2002, Walker honored his wish. Up a dusty, rickety staircase, locked in a concealed attic, she found the collection: a massive archive documenting the underground actors and covert strategies behind the most significant era of the fight for educational justice. Thus began Walker’s sixteen-year project to uncover the network of educators behind countless battles—in courtrooms, schools, and communities—for the education of black children. Until now, the courageous story of how black Americans in the South won so much and subsequently fell so far has been incomplete. The Lost Education of Horace Tate is a monumental work that offers fresh insight into the southern struggle for human rights, revealing little-known accounts of leaders such as W.E.B. Du Bois and James Weldon Johnson, as well as hidden provocateurs like Horace Tate."-- Provided by publisher.

This noble woman : Myrtilla Miner and her fight to establish a school for African American girls in the slaveholding South

July 26, 2018
Greenburg, Michael M., author.
Chicago, Illinois : Chicago Review Press Incorporated, [2018]
216 pages : illustrations ; 23 cm

Myrtilla Miner, the daughter of poor white farmers in Madison County, New York, was fueled by an unyielding feminist conviction. On December 3, 1851, the fiery educator and abolitionist opened the School for Colored Girls-- the only school in Washington, DC, dedicated to training African American students to be teachers. Milner fended off numerous attacks, including stonings, arson, and physical threats. The school would gradually gain national fame and stimulate a nationwide debate on the education of black people. -- adapted from back cover of jacket

Chicago, Illinois : Chicago Review Press, [2018]
viii, 264 pages ; 23 cm
"There is a place for all girls and young women--not just the science fair winners and robotics club members--in STEM classes and careers. To succeed in science and tech fields today, girls don't have to change who they are. A girl who combines her natural talents, interests, and dreams with STEM skills has a greater shot at a career she loves and a salary she deserves. The authors present compelling research in a conversational, accessible style and provide specific advice and takeaways for each stage of schooling from elementary school through college, followed by comprehensive STEM resources. This isn't a book about raising competitive, test-acing girls in lab coats; this is about raising happy, confident girls who realize the world of opportunities before them"-- Provided by publisher.
