The Culture of The School…

and the Problem of Change.

In 1972 Seymour Sarason (Yale University) wrote a groundbreaking book with that title, published by Teachers College. In 1996 he wrote “Revisiting “The Culture of The School and The Problem of Change.” Unfortunately he died in 2010 and thus couldn’t rewrite this for our terrible times. (How I miss him!) It’s a book that always seems timely. Buy it (or get it out of the library) and read every single word. Let me know what you think.

  1. I’m a huge fan of Sarason. His work is all great and sadly overlooked by today’s “reformers.”

    I wrote about Sarason in this article, http://www.huffingtonpost.com/gary-stager/wanna-be-a-school-reforme_b_765199.html
