"Acton Academy is one of the most important education developments in the world. The story behind the ideas, the school, and the movement is a must read.”

"A remarkable book that captures the powerful journeys of Acton Academy’s founders, students, parent community, and — I hope — the future of education around the globe. Any school, whether traditional or innovative, will gain insights from this magical place.”

"If you think education in America is doing fine, ignore this book. If you believe something’s missing in America’s schools, buy the book AND read it. You may save the life of someone you love.”
