Reviews

Shirley and Hargreaves have written the right book at the right time. They bring the voice of reason to the current heated ‘culture wars’ and battles over ‘identity politics.’ If we heed their wise counsel, we can learn to listen to one another and forge a collective identity of respect. -- Diane Ravitch This essential book shows how all educators can and should address issues of identity in their schools with candor and civility. Carefully researched, it offers a clear conceptual framework and practical guidelines that can be followed in all schools everywhere. -- Patrick Tutwiler * Massachusetts * Shirley and Hargreaves call for universal inclusive education that promotes dignity, generosity, and self-determined learning. They advocate for education that truly values and understands every individual, noting that what is essential for some children is good for all of them. -- Dame Alison Peacock * London, England * This is an excellent book and one that I will purchase for all our central leaders and school principals. It moves from academic theory to a real-life practical guide with stories that humanize our students, school staff, and communities. -- Tom D’Amico * Ottawa, Ontario, Canada * We find ourselves in a time where being inclusive and welcoming to all students is a political issue as opposed to a human one. Shirley and Hargreaves engage readers with their collective brilliance and heart to offer clarity in thought and action to ensure that students thrive, regardless of how they identify. -- Peter DeWitt * Albany, New York * This book will help us figure out how to name, interrupt, and educate when students experience anything that does not help them feel safe, included, respected, and cared for. It gives educators practical tools with which to lean into the difference between intent and impact. -- John Malloy * Danville, California * This is a work of courage and truth in the midst of a world that can be challenging. The content of the book fills my heart. -- Nicola Ngarewa * Wellington, New Zealand * Incisive, insightful, and inspirational. Shirley and Hargreaves present a compelling argument for schools and educators to work with students on the issues of identity. Moreover, they present practical and evidence-based guidelines that can be implemented in schools. -- Yong Zhao * Lawrence, Kansas * Every child needs to feel that they belong in order to feel safe enough to learn. The Age of Identity is an inspiring antidote to school systems that measure children with standardized tests. This compelling book is an overdue dose of radical common sense. -- Jim Knight This brilliant and profound book is at the heart of education across the globe. Shirley and Hargreaves show how learning triumphs over ignorance when students are confident in who they are. They provide teachers with tools to navigate confidently one of the most controversial topics in education today. The Age of Identity is essential reading for all teachers. -- David Edwards * Brussels, Belgium *
