Making education work for the poor : the potential of children's savings accounts
Elliott, William, III, author
New York, NY : Oxford University Press, [2018]
"Making Education Work for the Poor identifies wealth inequality as the gravest threat to the American education system. Today, wealth, rather than individuals' effort and ability, determines educational outcomes. This book calls for universal Opportunity Investment Accounts to be the cornerstone of the wealth-building agenda the nation needs to salvage the American Dream" --

This volume focuses on innovative school-university-community collaborations that are being implemented in rural places in the United States. A foundational belief that underpins the contributions to this volume is that rural communities contain within themselves the resources to promote and sustain vibrant educational endeavours. This belief has inspired a wealth of innovations that collectively offer a countervailing perspective to the view that global competitiveness is the preeminent goal of education, and that this goal is best served by "big education." Since early last century, there has been a pervasive implicit, and sometimes explicit, assumption that rural places are bereft of the ability to educate children effectively. As repeatedly witnessed in this volume, in collaboration with universities, schools in rural places and the communities that both sustain and rely on them can appropriately configure the educational environment to optimally nurture the intellectual growth of children. The chapters in this volume are grouped into three parts that explore, in turn, the design features of innovative school-university-community collaborations, some novel approaches to such collaborations, and the contours of parental and community involvement in such collaborations. Chapters discuss both larger scale collaborations that involve many school districts across wide-spread regions, and smaller scale collaborations that involve intensive engagements among the educators and members of smaller communities, and offer theoretical insights into the collaborative process itself. As mentioned above, two narrative threads run through the chapters: that effective collaborations address goals and aspirations expressed by those who are privileged to live in rural America, and that effective collaborations are oriented to building on the strengths inherent in the social fabric of those rural communities. -- Amazon.com.

Classics : why it matters
Morley, Neville, author
Medford, MA : Polity Press, 2018

After the education wars : how smart schools upend the business of reform
Gabor, Andrea, author
New York : The New Press, 2018
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.

An old story : my love affair with antiques
Zachowski, Matt author
"While the internet has brought transparency to numerous markets that historically operated in the shadows, the market for American antiques remains opaque to all but professional dealers and major collectors. Subtle differences between similar objects, carefully disguised repairs and restorations, material that has been through auction without selling -- all of these things can have a dramatic effect on the value of an object but are imperceptible to the average auction-goer or retail buyer. The lack of transparency in these and other areas, including the inner workings of the auctions themselves, results in many buyers overpaying for antiques that are not entirely what they purport to be. My thesis, written in the form of a narrative, addresses the above conundrum by answering the question: what does a beginning collector need to know before purchasing antiques? It traces my own learning curve over 25 years as a "middle market" collector of American antiques. Through conversations with leading dealers and auction house specialists as well as meticulous research, I gradually pierce the veil that masks the secrets of the leading auction houses and the tightly-knit dealer community. Presented as a creative writing exercise, I shed light on a mysterious domain by recounting my personal collecting experiences and demonstrating that all the information you need to be successful is there if you know where to look.
