Product Details


Shortlisted for the 2017/18 Donner Prize

Pushing the Limits is a real gem of a book. In a clear, accessible manner, the authors outline how we can have the schools our kids deserve. Using humane real life examples, they show how some of the most difficult challenges facing our classrooms today can be overcome with a focus on high-quality relationships, pedagogy and belief in children’s competence. A real beacon of hope—I couldn’t put it down.” —Jean M. Clinton, M.D., child psychiatrist; co-author of Learning Social Literacy

Pushing the Limits is a book about the transformations of children’s lives through magnificent teaching and leading. It’s engaging, enlightening and elevating. Once you open it, you won’t be able to put it down.” —Andy Hargreaves, Brennan Chair in Education, Boston College; President of the International Congress of School Effectiveness and Improvement

“This is some of the most hopeful writing on education I’ve read in a long time. Pushing the Limits should be essential reading for everyone who cares about public education, young people and the best way to ensure that our next generations are both successful as individuals and able to provide solutions for our complex social, environmental and economic challenges.” —Annie Kidder, Executive Director, People for Education
