Praise

“Ungerleider makes a convincing case that strong publicly funded schooling is not just a key ingredient for a civil and effective society – it is the cornerstone of it, and needs the resources and confidence of a grateful society to ensure the Canadian experiment regains the positive momentum it needs… [His] use of the first person, his substitution of plain language for edu-babble and the real-life stories sprinkled throughout his text make this important contribution widely accessible to the public at large.”
–Charles E. Pascal, Literary Review of Canada

“Dr Ungerleider’s book deserves to be read widely. In fact, it deserves to be studied. He is incisive, passionate, thoughtful, and wonderfully provocative. This book is bound to shape views and policies on public education.”
–Mordechai Rozanski

“Clear, concise, and to the point, Dr. Ungerleider has underscored the absolute importance of our public education system – how we can all benefit from it. The greatest benefit is that our children, from a wealth of backgrounds, learn to live together as Canadians. It is where our united bond begins, our national cohesion. This book is a ‘must-read’ for all Canadians.”
–Senator Laurier L. LaPierre, O.C.

“When we fail our schools, we not only neglect a generation of students, we compromise our national future. Charles Ungerleider recognizes the challenges facing public education, but he is determined not to let it go without a fight. By deftly combining broad insights, specific examples, and concrete remedies, Dr. Ungerleider leads readers through his powerful analyses of all the major issues confronting public education. It is a journey well worth taking. Teachers, parents, policy-makers and pundits: Read this book. Then act.”
–Heather-jane Robertson
