I completely agree with Relentless Pursuit. It's the most comprehensive and personal look at TFA I've read and manages to walk the fine line between being hopeful yet not making TFA into a savior organization.

Thanks for these solid and diverse recommendations. Added 'em to my Goodreads 'to-read' shelf!

I'm a big fan of "Children in Room E4." It has lots of classroom stories and lots of policy struggles.

Tim, I absolutely LOVE "The Children in Room E4." I should have included it on the list. Totally shaped my thinking on segregation/integration issues.

The website Flashlightworthybooks has some good lists of education books: http://www.flashlightworthybooks.com/category/Education-best-book-lists/22?fromhome=1
