A response to the book…

This is an outstanding book! Ms. Sandy McKane has created a local, state, national and international blueprint on why and how to establish “A National K – 12 Service Initiative.” After more than a decade of intensive research and development, she has demonstrated, by successful service examples and expert information, the true service essence for: “Of the People, By the People, For the People.”

I have read this powerful and enlightening book several times, and each reading has given me greater insight on the myriad needs for implementing the action steps clearly presented in this service initiative primer. Without question, I recommend strongly this pragmatic guide – researched and written with the highest academic quality – for adoption in the education curricula/curriculum of all/each public and private college/university in the United States…as well as similar global educational training for service initiatives.
