So Much Reform. So Little Change
From the web site: "This frank and courageous book explores the persistence of failure in today’s urban schools. At its heart is the argument that most education policy discussions are disconnected from the daily realities of urban schools, especially those in poor and beleaguered neighborhoods. Charles M. Payne argues that we have failed to account fully for the weakness of the social infrastructure and the often dysfunctional organizational environments of urban schools and school systems. I read this book, and it is one of the most depressing I've ever read, illustrating how so many dollars have been spent with so little impact, and how few prospects there are to change this in the future. It reinforces my belief that we need to engage other adults beyond parents, educators and policy makers in learning about the problem and being part of the solutions."

The Spider and the Starfish
Editor note: I read this book in January 2007 and it really gives definition to the type of work I do with the Tutor/Mentor Connection and with the Cabrini Connections tutor/mentor program that I led from 1993-2011. I view a tutoring/mentoring program as a decentralized organization that supports the actions of youth and volunteers, and of hundreds of similar organizations, via this web site, our conferences, and our efforts to help every tutor/mentor program get needed resources on a more consistent basis.
