Summary
  • Classroom Crusaders presents twelve inspirational profiles of teachers who are leading education reform in their schools, districts, and communities. Their stories clearly illustrate the enormous reservoir of energy, vitality, intelligence, and creativity among our nation's teaching force - and reveal how it could well be our most important source of positive educational change
  • Each story provides a portrait of someone who challenged the status quo and made a difference. We see how a Brooklyn educator created a place for racially divided students to come together and solve problems peaceably. We learn how a Rochester teachers' union president challenged time-honored labor practices in order to improve schools. And we follow the story of two Milwaukee teachers who started a feisty newspaper to shake up the local education establishment and then went on to create an experimental public school. The profiles show not only what these teachers accomplished but also how they themselves changed in the process
