—Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and A Whole New Mind
'Faces of Learning is a treasure trove of recollections to remind us that education is most powerful and transformative when it occurs within a supportive relationship and taps into the intrinsically human desire to know and understand. A must read for those who've grown tired of the nation's fixation with measuring achievement and who seek to be inspired by others who appreciate that learning can be about so much more.'
—Pedro Noguera, author of The Trouble with Black Boys
'The 50 stories here confirm that educational achievement is always intensely personal. As the national debate on education gathers momentum, Faces of Learning is an elegant reminder that nothing counts more in raising the bar than creative, inspirational teaching. It should be read and acted on by anyone with a serious interest in what really makes the difference in education.'
—Sir Ken Robinson, author of The Element
'A great education is not about standardized tests and numbers; it's about helping children learn to use their minds well. The stories in Faces of Learning remind us of that central truth, and of the difference that teachers make, and how their influence extends far beyond simple scores to shape people's lives.'
—Diane Ravitch, author of The Death and Life of the Great American School System
