Excerpt: Saving America's High Schools

Excerpt: Saving America's High Schools

Ratings: (0)|Views: 440|Likes:
"High schools are not working for a substantial number of the 14 million adolescents they are charged with educating. At best, one in four public high school students does not graduate in four years.” The numbers Becky Smerdon and Kathryn Borman cite are sobering, but not surprising.

Saving America’s High Schools, with contributions from the foremost experts in school reform, urban education, and child development and poverty, offers strong quantitative research drawn from large-scale high school reform studies nationwide along with recommendations to reform policy and practice at federal, state, and district levels.
