Editorial Reviews

Ron Brandt
"A credible plan for transforming secondary education by educators already involved in pioneering the change."
Robert A. Mackin

"Finally, a clear and practical approach for implementing genuine school improvement based on high standards. Marsh and Codding have gone beyond the rhetoric of many high school reform leaders and have addressed the needs of parents and practitioners alike. Their "collection of essays" represents a powerful and pragmatic blueprint for a new American high school. Bravo."

Howard Lappin

"David Marsh and Judy Codding do not simply challenge us to move beyond the status quo, but they provide practical how-to information and tools to motivate us to implement truly powerful school reform."

Sherry P. King
"This book is like a primer for those involved in high school reform. It combines theory and practice from the classroom to the boardroom. It is an important resource for those working in American high schools."
