".highly informative, covers the main policy developments in an authoritative manner and could provoke much needed debate." David Taras, Alberta Views


"a fascinating and disturbing book.. We owe it to ourselves and our kids to read this significant and instructive book and to get more involved." Canadian Principal


"This book is an illuminating and thorough critique of Klein's education legacy. Trevor Harrison and Jerrold Kachur's collection of essays is meticulous and non-partisan, and though Classrooms was published in 1999 its critiques are remarkably prescient--useful to anyone wishing to understand the roots of the grievances outlined by 2003's Alberta Learning Commission." Evan Osenton, Assistant Editor, AlbertaViews
