The 2005 edition of “Prisoners of Time” is available from the Education Commission of the States.

The Denver-based Education Commission of the States last week released an updated edition of “Prisoners of Time,” a widely read 1994 federal report that called on educators to use time more creatively and effectively to improve teaching and learning.

The reprint of the report, originally produced by the U.S. Department of Education’s National Education Commission on Time and Learning, includes a new introduction and more recent examples of how educators use time productively.
