This book seeks to leave the reader feeling optimistic and forward-thinking about our collective ability to provide a better educational future for all of our children. Rather than simply recite problems, Unlearning Failure seeks to explore credible solutions. If we are to fix the current urban schooling mess that we find ourselves in, we might well need to reignite our collective outside-the-box thinking as well as revisit measures previously labeled controversial.
