The truth is often hard to face, but if educators and politicians continue to avoid the realities associated with the educational process, then enormous amounts of time and energy will continue to be spent chasing a variety of educational illusions. Daniel Wentland meshes economics, psychology, philosophy, and common sense in proposing a pathway for leaders to follow if they really want to improve education in America. The information in this book moves the educational process off the nowhere track and onto the reality track where the educational system can become an effective mechanism for improving learning. Wentland's blueprint for change is one that needs to be listened to by education policy makers and practitioners everywhere. The question now becomes, who wants to see reality?
