Overview

This straightforward and inspiring book takes readers into schools where educators believe-and prove-that all children, even those considered "hard-to-teach," can learn to high standards. Their teachers and principals refuse to write them off and instead show how thoughtful instruction, high expectations, stubborn commitment, and careful consideration of each child's needs can result in remarkable improvements in student achievement.

What People Are Saying

E. D. Hirsch
"Can a good school enable disadvantaged children to catch up? Some say, 'No, we must change society first.' This scrupulous and humane book shows that a good school can make a decisive difference in giving every child a chance to achieve the American Dream. Karin Chenoweth is to be warmly thanked for showing in detail how some schools and their devoted staffs have refuted the idea that demography is fate."--(E. D. Hirsch, Jr., Professor Emeritus, University of Virginia)

    Inspiring Stories of School Triumphs

    Chenoweth's book is a fascinating glance at how schools no one would expect to succeed are doing just that. She provides story after story of school after school that is overcoming poverty and other obstacles to see that students are successful. The stories themselves are valuable in that real educators describe the things they have done to make learning happen for students others have given up on. As an educator, I can appreciate these stories. I also find the list of common things these schools are doing to be successful, fascinating and useful as well. This is an excellent book for those who wish to hear success stories in the most unlikely places. It is an excellent book for the student in education classes and for the administrator who needs affirmation that all students can experience success.
