Andrea Gabor:  “After the Education Wars:  How Smart Schools Upend the  Business of Reform.”  
Business Journalist Andrea Gabor’s widely praised new book on school reform argues that Bill Gates, Eli Broad and other leaders of the reform movement have borrowed all the wrong lessons from business.  Ms. Gabor will share stories about how real reform works on the ground, often borrowing from the more collaborative lessons of the quality and open-source software movements, as well as building on the nurturing culture of the best schools.
