Avis Glaze is one of Canada’s top educators and an international leader in the field of education. From her earliest days in Jamaica, as a young girl who was driven to teach others to read, to her rapid rise through all levels of the school system to become Ontario’s first Chief Student Achievement Officer, Glaze has been a persistent voice in the belief that there should be no ‘throw-away kids.’
Avis Glaze: The Children Cannot Wait, is part biography and part chronicle of achievements. But it is mainly a template for action. Whether you are a teacher, principal, school district leader, policy maker, or anyone who has a stake in education and leadership, the ideas in this book will resonate. Topics include continuous improvement in student achievement and wellbeing, leadership development, equity, social justice and inclusive education, character building, career education, and innovations she has spearheaded. This book will serve to stimulate thinking, encourage reflection, reaffirm current efforts, and inspire future actions.
