A Place Called School (book)  
DEFINITION
  • John Goodlad's A Place Called School, published in 1984, is the chief fruit of what is generally considered the most extensive on-site examination of U.S. schools ever undertaken. Deftly combining quantitative and qualitative data, Goodlad offers both a robust portrait of that place called “school” and a broad agenda for improvement.
