From the most recent Amazon review! "For anyone interested in what is going on in public education, this book is for you! ...observing what is working in the public education system, this book is the best perspective many of us can get without embarking on a similar journey... [A] gifted writer who captures the spirit of the classrooms in such a way the reader feels like they are peering in and watching a drama unfold. It also provides hope that not all is lost and there is value in our public school system and hope for our children."

My book "CAPTURING THE SPARK: Inspired Teaching, Thriving Schools" is available now.

DAN PINK says:
"[Cohen finds] daily examples of the kind of enthusiastic learning teachers can foster through a well-defined sense of autonomy, mastery, and purpose. If you’re looking for reasons to be hopeful about public education, read this story of optimism and excellence.”

"Capturing the Spark" reviewer says this "well-scribed study is refreshing and rewarding. [Cohen] cares about the quality of education, has gathered so many fine teachers who provide the personal histories of how to make a difference..."
