Author Dan Domenech, Princeton Montessori School grandfather of Logan and Robert Gregov, is getting high praise for his bookPersonalizing 21st Century Education: A Framework for Student Success. Dr. Domenech is Executive Director of AASA, The School Superintendents Association. The Gregovs have generously donated several copies of his book to the Rambusch Library for our community to enjoy and shared that Cheryl’s father’s book promotes the approach to education practiced in Montessori. – Here is what the Critics are saying:––“A passionate call-to-action, an inspiring vision, and a practical guide…three seasoned education leaders in the ‘establishment’ lay out a compelling case for systemic changes to enable personalized education.” —Yong Zhao, PhD, Professor, University of Oregon; author of Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Dragon? Why China has the Best (and Worst) Education System in the World–“Creating school environments where students are ‘leading their own learning’ is a powerful focus of Personalizing 21st Century Education. This compelling yet practical book provides readers with the foundation and motivation to move personalized learning to the top of the agenda!” —Mark Edwards, EdD, Superintendent, Mooresville Graded School District––“Personalizing 21st Century Education highlights the need to move from differentiation to personalization in today’s classrooms. Equitable opportunities to learn can be realized if we have the courage to dramatically reimagine teaching, assessment, and accountability. This book is a call to action for the dramatic paradigm shift we need in order to serve all learners well.” —Dr. Valerie Truesdale, Chief Technology, Personalization and Engagement Officer, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools
