The vast amount of data, and the wide spectrum of programs visited, offer a remarkably rich portrayal of the community college classroom." -- Educational Researcher, March 2002
"Honored but Invisible is an important contribution to our understanding of actual instructional practices and the influences that can help bridge the gap between the rhetoric and practices of teaching college.--Susan Twombly, University of Kansas."
"...this is an extremely comprehensive work that is a rich source of data on teaching...The authors are also to be commended for their sympathetic treatment of the community college teaching process--they have a grasp of the institutions they examine...This book should be read by all teachers and administrators at community colleges who are interested in improving their teaching." -- Jim Jacobs, Community College Journal
