“If a school is not dedicated to learning, it is not seeking its own purpose. [This book] discusses the professional learning community in the standard academic school, stating that a community where the teachers continue to learn will encourage them to keep the students learning, as Robert Eaker and Janel Keating use their collective expertise in education on many levels to discuss how to establish a professional learning community at one's own school. [This book] is a scholarly and much-recommended addition to community and college library education collections.”
