"Anyone who reads this book has to feel obligated to 'set their world on fire.' The text not only forces the reader to see how we are failing our children and their teachers, it provides the means for each of us to do better."

A well written and easy to understand book which explains how to plan and conduct practitioner-based evaluations, in order to focus on student results and to improve staff development programs. Super examples of sample data-collection instruments and a useful staff development guide. I would recommend this book for all teachers and lecturers who are committed to continue improving their practice.
