“I’ve always said, ‘People over policies, and practices over programs.’ Chris Weber reminds us in Doing What Works that having good people engaged in simple, common-sense practices is the best way to foster student learning. Chris is right—we do know what works in education, and we are the answer we’ve been waiting for.”
