Overview
In Letters to a Young Education Reformer, Frederick M. Hess distills knowledge from twenty-five years of working in and around school reform. Inspired by his conversations with young, would-be reformers who are passionate about transforming education, the book offers a window into Hess's thinking about what education reform is and should be.

Hess writes that "reform is more a matter of how one thinks about school improvement than a recital of programs and policy proposals." Through his essays, he explores a range of topics, including:

-Talkers and Doers
-The Temptations of Bureaucracy
-The Value in Talking with Those Who Disagree
-Why You Shouldn't Put Too Much Faith in Experts
-Philanthropy and Its Discontents
-The Problem with Passion

Hess offers personal impressions as well as lessons from notable mistakes he's observed with the hope that readers will benefit from his frustrations and realizations.

As the policy landscape continues to shift, Letters to a Young Education Reformer offers valuable, timely insights to any young person passionate about transforming education--and to not-so-young reformers who are inclined to reflect on their successes and failures.
