INSIDE HIGH SCHOOL REFORM
A new WestEd book details the turnaround approaches that are preparing more students for college — disadvantaged students who wouldn’t get there otherwise. Jordan Horowitz and his research team followed 28 high schools, once labeled as California’s lowest-performing, to uncover the formulas teachers used to rescue their students — and themselves — from expected failure. Full of concrete examples, transferable techniques, and insider advice that only experience brings, Horowitz offers real-life solutions to the common problems plaguing high schools across the country.
