“Jennifer and Mark are two educators that know how to transform some of the most frustrating teacher problems into easy-to-implement solutions. Each hack in this book is presented in a clear and logical manner. I found myself agreeing over and over again with the sensibility of their ideas. Yet, as we all know, good ideas in education sometime get stopped in their tracks. Thankfully Jennifer and Mark have provided simple steps that anyone can take to overcome resistance and pushback against the doubters. Hacking Education proves that anyone–from a first year-teacher to a 30-year veteran–can be a more effective teacher and be a positive agent of change in their school’s culture.”
