Learning From The Federal Market-Based Reforms: Lessons For ESSA, Edited By Mathis And Trujillo, Is In Print!

I wanted to pass along information about this book again (see here and here earlier notices).

Dear Colleagues:

Our book, featuring your chapter, is now out!

As Larry Cuban put it, we have a “cast of all-star scholars” in this volume, and in Gloria Ladson-Billings words, we’ve “assembled some of the nation’s best minds” to examine the evidence on today’s market-based reforms as well as more promising, equitable ones. We are thrilled that we were able to include your excellent work.


The timing of the book’s release is quite opportune, given that ESSA rules are being put together and state implementation plans are now being developed. However, we need your help to get the word out about the book so that its recommendations for more equitable, democratic reforms and policies can fall into the right hands.

Specifically, we ask that you help promote the book in the following ways:

  1. Forward this link to the publishers’ website to your scholarly and practitioner networks. Here, readers can purchase the book at a substantially reduced price of $30 per paperback or $70 per hardcover plus s/h thru7/31/17. The discount code to use at checkout is LFMBR30350.
  1. Post the book link on social media, including Facebook, Twitter, etc.

We both hope that this book can make an important contribution to the conversation and decision-making around ESSA and educational policy and reform more broadly. Thanks for helping us spread the word!
