The primary audience for the book will be practicing teachers and parents though there is also great potential for marketing to a college audience, particularly pre-service teachers and teacher educators. As professors of Education, we envision using this book in a senior seminar course or Contemporary Issues in Education course (required or offered as an elective in many teacher education programs). A large secondary audience will include parents, who see the impact of education reform on their children and are looking for straightforward and accessible information to help them understand what is happening and acquire the tools for resistance. Finally, activists themselves are living this movement and are hungry for tangible evidence of their efforts. A book like this has the potential to become a sort of 'collector's item' among them. This book is a poignant celebration of grassroots empowerment as our contributors, people who just a short time ago thought of themselves as ordinary citizens, document their call to action when their children and their profession are on the line. We believe that readers will urge others to read it, for inspiration as well as for practical guidance on how to become active in the movement themselves.
