Hot Fires Burn Fast, So Do Poor Policies

I’m proud to call Latoya Dixon friend, and her newly published book is so timely.

She makes several bold confessions, shares a practitioner’s perspective, and develops a compelling case for activism in education and gives basic steps that anyone can take to make positive change.

Policies have too long been about goals and consequences. Carrots and sticks only go so far, and that’s not very far at all. These policies have large gaps between aspiration and real practice.

If you’re looking for a motivating spring read, I recommend this book. Take a look at my full book review here.
