I’ve mentioned Bridging Differences before on this blog. It’s always worth checking out, and both of its authors have recommended summer reading lists (here and here) .

Here’s Deborah Meier’s list:

My friend Kathy Cushman’s, Fires in the Mind: What Kids Can Tell Us About Motivation and Mastery; DIY U: Edupreneurs, and the Coming Transformation of Higher Education, by Anya Kamenetz–provocative thoughts on higher education; Tony Judt’s Ill Fares the Land; Kenneth Strike’s Small Schools and Strong Communities, with an introduction by the late Mary Anne Raywid. And an oldie by David Hawkins, The Informed Vision: Essays on Learning and Human Nature , and up a different alley–Michael Lewis’s The Big Short.

She also recommends Mis-Measuring Our Lives, Why GDP Doesn’t Add Up, by Joseph E. Stiglitz, Amartya Sen, and Jean-Paul Fitoussi.

Incidentally, all the hyperlinked titles link to websites connected to the books.
