"The ICS model provides an opportunity for aligning educational programming within and across schools to provide a comprehensive PreK-12 experience that culminates in the results districts are looking for: students exceeding their potential and having the skills, knowledge, and long-term understandings that can be applied to real-world problems."
"The implications for leadership are compelling. Teachers, principals, directors, and superintendents should include this book as a must-read as they advance equity and excellence for all children in their schools and districts."
"Not to be missed by either teachers or colleges catering to teacher education. This book goes well beyond the usual focus on testing results to help educators decide on program implementation."
“This volume is essential reading for any parent, teacher, school administrator, or academic within the field of education interested in working toward solutions to the problems plaguing our schools in the 21st century instead of maintaining the status quo. The ICS framework offers an empirically tested model for school districts to consider if they are seriously interested in substantive school reform.”
