The controversial issue of ability grouping is addressed in this book. Though one of the major themes of the restructuring debate in education is the heterogeneous grouping of students, teachers argue that to expect students to read at a higher level than that at which they are capable is detrimental. The author poses key questions in this debate, and presents all sides of the issue through interviews with recognized experts in education.
