each of us can be. Our best hope for the future is having each
youth learn and live up to his full potential. This is a revolution

"Educators who do not understand current brain research can do real harm to their students. It is the equivalent of malpractice for doctors. Join the education revolution and empower your students to thrive!" -- Dara Feldman, Educational Consultant
"The Education Revolution focuses on the whole child through both academic and social aspects of learning. This is the first text I've read that addresses the small percent of our population whose behaviors will not be eradicated through punishment. I feel confident that I can trust this research and use these ideas in my teaching." -- Kendra Hanzlik, Instructional Coach
"Brilliant! Horacio's Education Revolution is a must read for all educators. It is on target and it will become an essential component of our professional development plan, and it should be included in every teacher preparation program. Teachers, principals, coaches, superintendents, and everyone interested in the education of today's youth must read this book. Don't wait. Our students deserve the best." -- Marianne T. Bartley, Ed.D., Superintendent of Schools
