Successful Failure: The School America Builds


"This is an intelligent & provocative book about qualitative research. It conjoins a compelling discussion of the theoretical assumptions of interpretive methods with illustrative studies of schooling & education. Readers can count on a challenge to tried & true ways of thinking, both about education & educational research. Many will find themselves changing their minds." Reba N. Page University of California "The vivid examples of students' displays of intelligence presented by Varenne & McDermott challenge us to think & act toward students in new & different ways." Hugh Mehan University of California at San Diego
