First published 20 years ago, A Place Called School is the revolutionary account of the largest on-scene study of U.S. schools ever conducted. Carried on over four years, trained investigators entered more than 1,000 classrooms nationwide to talk to teachers, students, administrators, parents, and other community members. The result is this report. Written by one of the nation's most astute and experienced educators, Goodlad's message of optimism and his agenda for improvement have only grown in importance since the book's original publication.

John I. Goodlad (Seattle, WA) is president of the Institute for Educational Inquiry and a founder of the Center for Educational Renewal at the University of Washington. The author of more than 30 books on education, Goodlad has received numerous national awards in recognition of his work in the field.
