A New Leader in the ‘Top Education Book of 2012’ Poll

Ed Next’s ‘Top Education Book of 2012’ poll has been quite a horse race!

Andy Smarick’s The Urban School System of the Future took an early lead, but it was soon overtaken by Paul Tough’s How Children Succeed. Tough’s book held the lead for a while, but then Doug Lemov’s Practice Perfect came out of nowhere to overtake it. It didn’t hold the lead for long, though. Deborah Kenny’s Born to Rise passed it late last week and has held the lead ever since.

Can Born to Rise hold on to first place? The poll will be open until January 25th. Cast your vote now, or scroll down to the bottom and click “view results” to see the latest standings:
