Brian's New Book
Coming Fall 2023
What They Are Saying!
"Brian applied a growth mindset as a teacher and principal and now applies it in his book. Our educational system does not provide gifted education for every child – yet. Reflections from educators and influential books, podcasts, and interviews illustrate the value of Brian's 5-shift path to create the schools we all want for our children. The principles and team culture he describes for PreK - 12 educators apply equally to teaching recent medical school graduates to become physicians and surgeons. This is a valuable read for anyone who wants to be a better educator. Let’s get all our children into the 'smart class.'"
— Steven L. Frick, MD, Professor and Vice Chair, Education, Stanford University School of Medicine, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery
"This highly engaging book presents a powerful argument for an education system that truly believes in the unlimited potential of every child in its care. Brian Butler shares powerful strategies for manifesting a vision of rich and engaging learning. In each chapter, you will find a beautiful balance of practical ideas, compelling research, and a narrative heart. For those educators and leaders who are exploring the idea of reimagining education, this book is an important and compelling read."
— Katie White, Author of Softening the Edges, and Educational Consultant
"In a world where education is evolving at an unprecedented pace, "Every Student Deserves a Gifted Education" is a guiding star for educators, parents, and anyone invested in the future of our youth. It's a celebration of individuality, a tribute to passion, and an ode to the unlimited potential within each and every student. Brian Butler's work isn't just a book; it's a manifesto of hope, a rallying cry for change, and a reminder that the power to nurture greatness lies within our collective hands.”

We have worked with educators in every state and in every province in Canada, and Brian is perhaps the finest elementary school principal we have ever known.
Although we have devoted our adult lives to the study of school improvement, some of our deepest learnings have occurred as a result of observing Brian’s leadership of a school.
