Overview

Why are so many of America's schools failing?

Our children's classrooms-and the teaching and learning that take place within them-should and can be upheld as sacrosanct. One of the country's leading school principals cites the significant role that character plays, as well as the essential values that support total school success.

Among the issues addressed:

  • What are the characteristics of successful schools?
  • What is effective school leadership? How might parents and school districts determine whether a school is well-run or in need of a change in direction?
  • How might school districts attract, support, and retain quality, first-rate classroom teachers and administrators?
  • The Achievement Gap-learn how this exceptional principal addressed the persistent performance disparity among groups of students, which led to all student groups meeting or exceeding state academic standards.
  • Can schools be safe and secure places of teaching and learning?

A sobering, penetrating but uplifting read, Dead Last provides poignant insight into American education, promoting a spirit of optimism that our schools can improve to world-class standing.
