Avis Glaze was recently identified as one of the most inspiring women every educator should know. 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 the founding CEO of the Literacy and Numeracy Secretariat and Ontario’s Education Commissioner, Glaze has been a persistent voice in the belief that there should be no ‘throw-away kids.’ Recognized for her record of innovations in education, including improved student learning and achievement in Ontario, she initiated system-wide character development programs in schools, communities and workplaces. This award-winning educator has been a steadfast advocate for equity of outcomes for all students. That is why Glaze has always acted with a sense of urgency because, as she often says, “the children cannot wait.” Glaze was chosen by the Canadian government to assist with education reform in South Africa. She is in demand as a speaker across the globe, having worked in more than 22 countries and over 30 U.S. states to help maximize impact. She is truly an international leader in the field of education. Part biography, part chronicle of achievements, this book will reignite passion and commitment to improve teaching, learning, leadership, and organizational effectiveness.
