Penn State

Dana L. Mitra - associate professor, education theory and policy, Penn State University Park

Book Title: Horace's compromise

Author: Theodore Sizer

Book Description:

Ted Sizer was my very first mentor as an undergraduate at Brown University. I was so deeply inspired by this book that I did everything that I could to learn from him. I filed his correspondence as my work study job at the Coalition of Essential Schools. I took all of his classes. I worked as his TA. He was wonderful at bringing me along as a fly on the wall in important meetings at a time when he was the center of educational reform policy in the country. He is the reason I entered this field and I would not be a professor today if it weren't for his scholarship and his kind, gentle leadership.
