Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This is a well written and scholarly work on the topic of full service and community schools that should be readable by a general audience. It is an original project that provides an in-depth study into an area of current interest. The Full-Service Community School Movement should have a substantial shelf life because it offers a historical perspective of enduring value with ties to the future." - Charles J. Russo, J.D., Ed.D., Panzer Chair in Education and Adjunct Professor of Law, University of Dayton
