“This book should be of interest to everyone involved in or interested in education. It is of special value to members of Boards of Education charged with developing and ensuring excellence in education and meeting the new education challenges of the world in which we live.”

"The compendium shows that it is not just about adding additional time to the school day or calendar—it is about what happens during that time."

“Terry Peterson has assembled a masterful group of practitioners and intellectuals who are piecing together, chapter by chapter, the puzzle of eradicating the [out-of-school time] opportunity gap for good.”

Expanding Minds is not only a must read, it is a must share!”
