Here are recommended books on history and current issues in school reform and education policy. We also suggest a subscription to the Rethinking Schools magazine for articles on education from a social justice perspective. Find children's/YA books and more titles on teaching in our full collection of booklists by theme.
Most of the books on these lists are linked for more information or purchase to Powells.com (an independent, unionized bookstore) and/or Bookshop (an indie bookstore platform). A small percentage from book sales through these links goes to Teaching for Change.
Titles with reviews on this site are noted with an asterisk (*).
